"We make no apology for engaging in the business set forth on 
our title-page, but wish briefly to outline the policy pursued and to 
be pursued. But for the abuse by adventurers and swindlers of a 
business in itself as legitimate as that of the lawyer, the banker, or 
the broker, we would not consider even this explanation necessary. 
"We may never be able to rid the business of its present odium, but 
we do pledge ourselves to do all in our power to that end, and shall 
never shrink from the task of publicly exposing frauds by which 
over-sanguine claimants are swindled out of their money, whenever 
such cases are brought to our notice. We shall endeavor to raise no 
false hopes, but when convinced that a claim is hopeless, will, as far 
as possible, prevent such claimant from expending money on it. "We 
have, and can .always have, plenty of legitimate business, and want 
nothing to do with imagined estates or visionary claimants. So 
much has been said and done respecting large estates supposed to 
exist in the old country, that it becomes our duty, right in the outset 
to say that which may have the effect of dispelling many a blissful 
dream; but the dreamer may have his reward, if he will, by the 
saving of his money. We do not dispute the fact that large sums of 
money do exist in almost every European country awaiting rightful 
claimants, many of whom are residents of America; but, although 
in the aggregate they amount to millions, yet they consist tor the 
most part of a multitude of small estates. Those amounting, to 
millions, or hundreds of millions, are very " few and far between." 
There is a tradition in a vast number, we might say in most of the 
old femilies, that they are entitled to a large estate in England, 
France, Germany, or some other European country; and as such 
traditions descend from father to son, the expected value always 
increases till it often reaches a sum too large for a common mind to 
grasp. Numerous associations have at different times been formed 
for the purpose of prosecuting these fictitious claims. One or two 
Ingenious persons proceed to set the ball rolling by sensational 
articles in the newspapers, or by circulars, calling all persons of a 
certain name to apply to them respecting a large derelict estate in 



the Old World. The statements are made with circumstantial 
details, having every appearance of truth, and, although seemingly 
harmless, are often the cause of great disappointment, trouble and 
expense. A list of names of the expectant heirs is prepared, a lib- 
eral estimate of expenses is formed for a trip to the old country, and 
the amount required is divided pro rata amongst all the claimants, 
who are then called upon to contribute their respective shares. It 
is understood in such case that they will be entitled to participate 
in the estate in proportion to the money subscribed, and so we get a 
joint-stock company. The scrip of such an adventure has been 
known to sell as high as two per cent of the supposed value of the 
estate. It requires but one or two to lead the way, and, like a flock 
of sheep, they all follow blindly, regardless of the most patent facts. 
Many cannot trace their pedigrees a generation back. They do not 
even know who has left the fortune sought to be recovered. A simple 
and vague statement that one "Hyde," "Lawrence," "Jennings," or 
others died in England a century ago suffices. Such trifles as a 
Will or the Statute of Limitations do not trouble them. The sup- 
position that a person of their surname was at one time possessed of 
wealth is sufficient to create all these subscribers to fortune " heirs 
to vast estates." They are unaware how little the mere similarity 
of name is worth in genealogical researches. Once possessed of the 
idea, it becomes their pet child, and their fancies range over a vast 
domain of possibilities which may place them in affluence. The 
demon of speculation becomes as strong in them as in any dealer in 
" options " on the Chicago Board of Trade. They are nearly al^yays 
poor or ignorant people, who are dazzled by the prospect of 
becoming suddenly rich, and are lured on until the exhaustion of 
their means puts an end to the investigation. But the dream 
remains as vivid as ever; the delusion is clung to with even greater 
tenacity; and all that remains for them to do is to complain of 
their wrongs, of the injustice of the law, or the fraud of some 
unknown trustee. The legend will, perhaps, be handed down to 
their children, who in their turn may seek possession of these 
imaginary millions. What is the result of these " associations," 
which, it may here be remarked, are by no means of recent date, 
some having been formed nearly half a century since? The agent 
(generally the promoter) deputed to discover the broad acres, on 
arrival in the old country, spends most of his time at the Probate 
Kegistry, endeavoring to connect a Testator, or an Intestate, with a 
member of the Association; and, when the locality is known, he has 


recourse to the Parish Eegisters. Finally, he seeks the assistance of 
a lawyer, who in most instances dissuades him from proceeding 
further with the vague -information in his possession. After a pro- 
longed and useless stay, he returns to the States, and a " Keport " is 
then printed, containing copies of wills, a few extracts from Parish 
Registers, and sometimes a copy of a crest. This is sent to each 
member of the syndicate. Notice of a second meeting is given, and, 
if sufficient funds are raised, another visit is made to Europe, and so 
the matter goes merrily on until the funds are exhausted. In some 
instances the agent reports that he has been unable to find the 
estate; or that, owing to the lapse of time, it cannot be recovered; 
or, mayhap, it is in the possession of the rightful owner. In one 
case, no less than three of the expectant heirs and two lawyers went 
to London, to endeavor to recover a small square in the East End. 
In another, an agent for some twenty years past has derived a liv- 
ing from the pseudo-claimants to a Townley estate which has long 
since been claimed and properly disposed of. A third has actually 
crossed the Atlantic no less than seventeen times. Not one of these 
associations has ever succeeded in recovering the estate, or, we would 
say, of even finding any vacant recoverable estate, whether real or 
personal; but, as an unsupported assertion is easily made, a locality 
is chosen by the agent bearing the name of the association, and is 
declared to be the estate sought for. It is to no one's interest to go 
to the expense of proving a negative, and so the assertion remains, 
if not unchallenged, at least not disproved by evidence. Thus the 
"Hyde," "Knight," "Harland," and "Hungerford" estates are said 
to consist respectively of " Hyde Park," " Knightsbridge," " Har- 
land Square," and " Hungerford Market and Bridge." If titles to 
real estate were to be upset upon such slender foundations as the 
mere coincidence of a name, owners of property would have to con- 
sider in title deeds- the name of the street in which their houses are 
situated. We should advise all persons who believe themselves 
entitled to property to be very cautious how they expend their 
money in verifying their suppositions. Large estates are few in 
number, and any one wishing to know whether there is any founda- 
tion for a report that an estate is unclaimed, can readily do so by 
applying to some responsible person engaged in that line of busi- 
ness. If any such estates exist, they are invariably known, and are 
usually placed in due course of Administration by the Chancery 
Courts. Many petsons are undoubtedly entitled to money which 
can still be recovered, although such claim may have been in abey- 


ance for upwards of a century. We do not advise persons to go to 
the other extreme, and take no interest in the subject, because they 
fancy that, owing to the impecunious position of their family, they 
cannot be entitled to a fortune. Although correct so far as " for- 
tune " is concerned, they may yet recover an amount to compensate 
them fully for their trouble, as these moneys generally find their 
way into the pockets of those who least expect it. 

In the following pages lists are given of persons who (if living, 
or, if dead, whose heirs) are entitled to money, and in most instances 
the persons mentioned are entitled to sums well worth recovering. 
In some cases investigation has not been made to ascertain what is 
really due, and in some cases the amount may prove too small to 
justify undertaking its recovery. It may be, in some instances, the 
money has recently been, or is now, in the course of recovery by the 
persons entitled to it; yet they are all worth looking into, inasmuch, 
as the fees charged for a preliminary examination are usually small

numbered, and the names of persons wanted numbering over 
100,000 are in the possession of this Bureau.* 

The following specimens of these advertisements are here 
inserted, simply to show their character in general: 

"Bakbaea Anderson '(deceased.) If William Anderson, for- 
merly of Elgin, North Britain, a relative of the above, and who 
is supposed to have gone abroad many years since, or, if dead, his 

widow or children, will communicate with Messrs ,

" Elizabeth Morris. — The heirs or next of kin of Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Morris, who lately died in the State of Pennsylvania, and who 
was formerly the wife of Oliver Morris (comedian), are requested to

Morris left England for America between 1770 and 1775, and paid 
a visit to England about the year 1802."

recoup, the same on Next of Kin substantiating their claim.)" 

" Thomas Nicholson, formerly of Chapel End, Walthamstow, 
in the County of Essex, (shoemaker,) about the year 1830 left 
England for Upper Canada; returned to England on a short visit 
about ten years ago, but sailed again for Canada. If living, he is 

about sixty-two years of age. If he or his heirs will apply to

This Manual will be thoroughly revised and published every 
year, and Supplements issued between times, as frequently as may , 
be required; so that names for insertion may be sent in at any time. 
"We trust we shall have the. hearty co-operation of all our cor- 
respondents, as no charge is made for insertion of advertisements, 
and the benefits are to be mutual. 

In the preparation of this Manual we have had access to similar 
works published in Europe, to the authors of which we feel under 
obligations, and take this public method of acknowledging the 
same. Amongst those from whose works we have drawn valuable 
data, we wish to name Robert Gun, Esq., Messrs. De Barnardy 
Brothers, and Edward Preston, Esq., all of London, England. 



The name of this Bureau is indicative of its nature, object and aims. It was 
begun in 1875, and has been in successful operation ever since. Having a complete 
chain of connections with similar Bureaus in Europe, and having access to informa- 
tion relative to unclaimed estates there, that have been accumulating for over one 
hundred and fifty years, and concerns property of many millions of dollars, the right- 
ful heirs to much of which now reside in America, and having correspondents in every 
county in the United States, we are enabled to collect and disperse information which 
speedily leads to the finding of rightful heirs and the recovery of long unclaimed 

Advertisements for Heirs at Law, Next of Elin, Owners of Unclaimed Money, etc., 
which have appeared in the newspapers of the United States, Canada, Great Britain, 
France and Germany since the year 1600, have been carefully preserved, classified 
and numbered, and the names of persons wanted numbering over 100,000, are in the 
possession of this Bureau. Information will be given as to whether or not any par- 
ticular-name appears in these lists, on receipt of a fee of $2.00. An abstract of the 
advertisement in which any name has appeared will be given on receipt of a fee ot 
$5.00. This fee will be deducted from the fee for a fuU copy of such advertisement,, 
should it be afterward desired* The fee for full copy of any advertisement is $10.00. 
Five or ten dollars expended in this way is often of more real value to a claimant than 
five hundred or a thousand dollars spent in sending an agent to Europe. These ad- 
vertisements do not cover all the claims that may arise. 

The fee for searching the records for a will is $10.00, where the date of the tes- 
tator's death can be given within two years. If this cannot be done, the fee 
is $3.00 additional for each additional year, and, at this rate, the search may be ex- 
tended over a period of two hundred years if desired. 

The Bank of England keeps what is called " Unclaimed Dividend Books." They 
are now seven in number, and date back to the year 1780, and represent the money 
deposited in that bank, and for -various reasons never called for since the beginnings 
of the last century. They contain the names of over 130,000 depositors, with descrip- 
tion as to profession and place of residence of each. These books can be personally 
inspected and any name searched for by our London Associate, for the same fee as. 
above set forth for searching for a will. 

^ There are thousands of tracts of land, especially in the Western States and Terri- 
tories, the owners of which are non-residents and unknown, or dead, and their heira 
ignorant of the ownership; Tax titles are maturing to much of it, and "land pirates" 
have possession of a large amount under forged or "bogus" titles. We hunt up these 
lands, and with such facts as we can get concerning the owners, and by means of 
extensive advertising can generally find the real owner or his heirs and place them in. 
rightful possession. No charge is made for advertising names, but we are to share in 
the profits of the case should the party advertised for be found. We urge our attor- 
neys and clients to send in such names as they desire advertised, with all facts per- 
taining to them. 

Every letter of inquiry to this Bureau must be accompanied by a fee of $1.00 to. 
insure an answer.

As the recovery of real estate is altogether barred if an action is not 
brought within a specified time, we have thought it advisable to 
give briefly the present existing law of England on the subject of Limita- 
tion of actions, as it effects reSl estate. 

It is not necessary however for present purposes to discuss or do any 
thing more than briefly allude to the various ancient Statutes of Limita- 
tion, which date from the year 1540, and most of which, if not all, have 
been repealed either actually or by implication. No case can now arise 
under them, and they are of interest to the antiquary rather than to the 
lawyer. Of existing interest there are two groups of facts and phases of 
Law to be considered. First, the Law as it stood previously to the 1st of 
January, 1879; and second, the Law as it now stands. The old Act, as 
wiU be seen, has now no force or operation whatever as to such parts of it 
as are repealed by the new one. In enacting these and other limitation, 
measures, the Legislature has acted on the principle that, where any person 
should fortuitously find himself in possession of realty to which some other 
person is rightfully entitled, such other person should, in the interest of 
the public, be placed under some restrictions as to the limit of time for his 
claim to be properly asserted. To divest any one of what he has had for 
many years, and has made provision for enjoying in perpetuity, would 
probably cause more harm in the end than to permit ah ignorant or negli- 

fent claimant to agitate, and carry out long dormant schemes for an in- 
efinite period. 

To dispose first of claims by the Crown. By 9 Geo. III., cap. 16 
(passed in 1769), and its amending Statutes, such claims and rights in any 
lands are now, and have since that date, been barred after the lapse of sixty 
years. Next, with regard to all other persons. Under the Law as it stood 
previous to the 1st of January, 1879, the Statute 3 & 4 Will. IV., cap. 27 
(passed in 1833), absolutely prevented any one from bringing an action, 
for the recovery of land, except within twenty years next after the time at. 
which the right to bring such an action first accrued to him, or to any an- 
cestor or other person through whom his claim might be founded or arise.. 
This Act contained the very reasonable proviso that with respect to Estates 
in reversion or remainder, or other future Estates, the right before alluded 
to should be deemed to have first accrued at the time when any such Es- 
tate became an Estate in possession. That is to say, a person entitled to 
succeed to the possession of an Estate on the death of another person who 
held it for life, was allowed twenty years to prosecute his claim from the 
date of the death of the life possessor, on whose death he would become 


entitled, and not before, to, himself enjoy an unfettered interest in the prop- 
erty. However, under Section 14 of that Act, a written acknowledgment 
of the title of the person entitled, given to him or his agent, and signed by 
the person in possession, extended the time of claim to twenty years from 
the date of such acknowledgment. "With respect to disabilities, the Act 
provided, that if, when the right to bring such an action first accrued, the 
person entitled should be under disability to sue, by reason of infancy, 
coverture (if a woman), lunacy, or absence beyond the seas, ten years were 
allowed from the time when the person entitled should have ceased to be 
under such disability, or should have died, notwithstanding that the period 
of twenty years before mentioned should have then expired, but with the 
definite proviso that the whole period do not, including the time of disa- 
bility, exceed forty years. As an example, we may take a case of a right 
first accruing in 1840. The land would have been forfeited twenty years 
after, or in 1860. Supposing the person entitled had been under 
a disability, such as absence beyond seas, when his right first accrued (1840), 
a further period of ten years was granted, provided the whole time did not 
exceed forty years, from the date of his having ceased to be beyond seas, 
*'. e., had he returned in 1855 his right would have disappeared ten years 
after that date, or in 1865, but had he returned in 1875 It would have been 
forfeited under that Law in 1880, and not 1885, when the whole period 
■would have exceeded forty years. Asa matter of fact, however, the right 
to recover .would actually have been lost on the 1st of January, 1879, when 
the new Act hereinafter alluded to became Law. Moreover, no further 
time was allowed on account of the disability of any other person than the 
one to whom the right of action first accrued. By that Act, also, a mort- 
gagee in possession was assured of a quiet possessory title at the expiration 
of twenty years next after he entered or gave a written acknowledgment 
such as that before alluded to, of the mortgagor's title or right to redeem. 
An illustration of the Law on this point, as it relates to mortgagees, may 
be of use. Let us suppose that A. has mortgaged his freehold property to 
B. for a certain sum, at a fixed rate of interest. The interest is not paid, 
and B., instead of exercising the power of sale he no doubt possesses under 
the mortgage deed, enters into possession, and pays himself his interest out 
of the rents of the property. As soon as he has been in possession twenty 
years under the Law then m force (or twelve years now), the right of A. 
to redeem and get his property back again becomes absolutely barred in the 
absence of the undertaking or acknowledgment before alluded to. As to 
an Advowson — which, it may be remarked, is a perpetual right of presenta- 
tion to an ecclesiastical benefice — no action could be brought to enforce a 
right of presentation after the happening of three successive incumbencies, 
or sixty years (whichever should last happen), or 100 years in all, in case 
three remarkably long-lived ecclesiastics should happen to' have been in 
possession for the whole century. Twenty years, too, was the limit for the 
recovery of money secured by mortgage, rents-service, or rents-charge and 
tithes ; or by judgment, or otherwise charged on land and legacies, in the 
absence of the statutory acknowledgment to which we have already alluded. 
In every case where any person who could have brought an action or suit for the 
recovery of the interests alluded to failed to do so, his right was altogetherex- 
tinguished. For all practical purposes this is an epitome of the Law as it stood 
prior to the 1st of January, 1879. The Real Property Limitation Act of 1874, 
which took effect from the 1st of January, 1879, made very important 
changes in the Law. Such changes, however, may be readily grasped by those 


^ho have carefully perused the following remarks, as, with one small ex- 
•ception, they are merely an alteration of figures in certain cases. The 
period of twelve years is substituted for twenty, ,as the limit of time for 
bringmg an action for the recovery of land, or all corporeal hereditaments, 
and most tithes and rent or other periodical payments charged on land, 
■from any person under the circumstances mentioned in the former Act 
and before alluded to. A good number of possessors with no title to their 
holdings other than the fact that they were in possession of them, must 
have blessed the passing of an Act that secured them the property after 
they had been only twelve years in occupation of it. Thus any one who 
'had taken unto himself a property in the year 1867, was assured, under 
the new Statute, in the quiet enjoyment of it, by the corresponding day of 
the year 1879, instead of 1887, as would have been the case, if the Act had 
not relieved him. The disability clause is also reduced to twelve years, 
with six years' grace, from death, or ceasuig of disabiHty, whichever shall 
first happen, provided that the whole period does not exceed thirty years. 
It may be here conveniently remarked that " absence beyond seas" ceases 
-altogether to be a disability under the new Act — a fact of some importance 
to foreigners. These are the brief, butimportantalterations the Law madeby 
the Statute of 1879 which has been rather more than five years in operation. 

There are certain other Statutes and many cases affecting the limita- 
tion of time for recovery of incorporeal hereditaments, such as way and 
water leaves and other rights, which, as they are hardly likely to be of any 
particular interest to our readers, we do not propose to discuss. 

Generally it may be stated, that in no case has a Claimant any chance 
. -of ousting a possessor, unless he has the amplest proofs that those in 
possession — ^who may be there by an agent, if not personally — are there in 
consequence of concealed fraud, or as Trustees for such Claimant. It is 
rseldom, if ever, that these very difficult facts have been proven to the satis- 
faction of a Court of Law. The foregoing remarks do not, however, apply 
to personal property, i. e., cash, or securities for cash in Government 
Stocks, the Court of Chancery, and in most public Companies, as such 
investments are held by the Companies as Trustees for their Shareholders, 
•or Stockholders as the case may be, and can always be recovered, together 
with the accrued dividends. Legacies bequeathed by Testators, and which 
remain unclaimed, are in the same position as the Stocks before mentioned, 
as also are shares under intestacies. 

All realty must be 6onveyed by a deed signed and sealed by the seller, 
which is delivered to the buyer as evidence of his title ; but it is a matter 
of considerable difficulty when a person dies intestate, or makes no allusion 
in his Will as to his realty, to ascertain when and how it has been disposed 
■of ; for it is only by application to those immediately concerned, that the 
actual ownership of land can be discovered, unless, however, it is situated 
in the following two counties or one district, in which disposition of land 
and similar property, whether by Deed or Will, must be registered. 

These counties and this district are provided with Eegistry Offices 
(established in the years mentioned), viz., Middlesex in 1708, West Eiding 
■of York in 1704, East Eiding of New York in 1707 (including the town 
and county of Kingston-upon-Hull), N'orth Eiding of York in 1737. 
The great district of the Pens known as the Bedford Level, which was 
Teclaimed some time since, has a special Act, vesting certain powers in the 
freeholder, and among others, that of requiring a registration similar to 
what is already in force in the counties, etc , above mentioned. 


The foregoing remarks comprise all tlie instances in which registration 
is compulsory for perfecting a title. In 1862 an Act was passed, entitled 
the " Land Eegistry Act" (25 and 26 Vict., cap. 53), making provision for 
an optional ofl&ciai investigation, by a Commissioner or Registrar appointed 
by the Government, of any title an owner might desire to have brought 
under the provisions of |the Act. On a title being found to be good, a cer- 
tificate was delivered to the owner, which formed his evidence that he was 
duly and properly in possession. However, after two or three decisions of 
the Judges, that the evidence on which the certificate was obtained was open 
toresifting at any time, the Statute became unworkable; so much so, 
indeed, that Lord St. Leonard, perhaps the most skillful conveyancer who 
has ever sat on the Woolsack, stated that the Act in question made a title 
" absolutely indefeasible except in the event of any flaw being found in 
it," a piece of sarcasm which completely finished its career as a practical 

In 1875 the " Land Titles and Transfer Act " repealed the foregoing 
Statute, and established ' an optional Land Registry for England and 
Wales (commencing 1st January, 1876), on a basis somewhat extended 
beyond the limits of its predecessor. A Registrar of Titles and an Assist- 
ant Registrar have been appointed, with a large staff of clerks, both 
professional and otherwise. These gentlemen act very much in the same 
way as if they were concerned for purchasers of property, the titles of 
which owners bring before them. A series of General Rules and Orders 
regulate the practice, and a strict investigation is made. If the title be 
found good, a certificate of " absolute title " is delivered. If the owner 
has a possessory title only, a certificate stating such to be the case is fur- 
nished him. No case has yet arisen in which a certificate of either of these 
kinds has been taken exception to. The Act contains a variety of clauses 
as to registration of mortgages and leases of land subject to its pro- 
visions which, being of a technical nature, it is unnecessary for us to note 
here. The principal facts are as stated. As a reform and a general 
benefit, however, it has wholly failed, and almost as signally so as its pre- 
decessor. Lawyers, for obvious reasons, do not advise the adoption of its 
provisions, and owners are shy of it because it does them no immediate 
good, and takes heavy fees out of their pockets without any immediate 
benefit. Those with good titles do not want them made better, and 
such as have bad ones do not want it to be known that they are so. A 
man who contemplates mortgaging his land — ;and two-thirds of theland'in 
England and Wales is mortgaged in some manner — does not wish to place 
himself in such a position that the fact may become known. This is a 
practical detail the framers of the Act overlooked altogether. Not one 
title in a thousand is registered under its clauses, which are, be it re- 
membered, merely optional. The Statute is at present, of chief, if not of 
only, advantage to theofiicials who draw large salaries for administering it ^ 
but it is to be hoped that an alteration will take place in the Legislation 
so as to render the registration of mortgages, and conveyances of land,, 
compulsory, as in Prance where it has worked smoothly for many years 
past. Such an alteration would save much useless litigation and great 
expense, besides conferring on the possessor an absolute and perfect title. 
A person may also dispose of his personal Estate by deed of gift, for 
which there are no Registry Offices. It is by no means rare to find an 
aged man giving both realty and personalty to his issue or to a stranger to 
avoid paying the Government duties on his decease. In many instances. 



therefore, as has heea 'shown, it is next to impossible to discover the actual 
ownership of property, whether real or personal, without knowledge 
obtained from parties able to disclose it. If therefore, any person believes 
himself entitled to property so disposed of, he would have to commence 
proceedings against the person in possession, who, after giving him notice 
that he has a perfect title, would produce the deed properly verified to the 
Court ; and, if it is in due and proper form, the person bringing the action 
would be condemned to pay all the costs of it, as the burden of proof in 
this as in all other cases, rests with the person seeking relief. — De Bar-

The Agricultural Lands are divided into two classes, one at $1.25 per acre, 
designated as minimum, lying outside of railroad limits ; the other at 
$2.50 per acre as double minimum, lying within railroad limits. Titles 
are acquired by purchase at pubhc sale, or by "ordinary private entry," 
and in virtue of the pre-emption, homestead, timber culture and other laws. 
Purchases at public sale are made when lands are "offered" at pubhc auc- 
tion to the highest bidder by proclamation of the President, or by order 
of the General Land Office. Lands so offered and not sold, and not since 
reserved or withdrawn from the market, can be secured by "private entry" 
or location. 

But none of the lands in Northern Dakota have been "offered" at 
public sale, all having been reserved for homesteads, pre-emption and tree 
claims on account of their agricultural value, and because this system is 
more in accordance with the interests of the masses, and not for specula- 
tors, as under the public sale system. Sioux half-breed scrip can be used 
to purchase any surveyed land, but very little of this scrip is now outstand- 
ing. Soldiers additional homestead entries can also be purchased and laid 
upon any vacant surveyed land, thus acquiring title without residence 


Any person who is the head of a family who has arrived at the age of 
twenty-one years, and is a citizen of the United States or has filed his declar- 
ation of intention to become such, is entitled to enter one-quarter sec- 
tion or less quantity of unappropriated land under the homestead laws. 
The applicant must make an affidavit that he is over the age of twenty-one 
or is the head of a family, and that he is a citizen of the United States or 
has declared his intention to become such, and that the entsy is made for 
his exclusive use and benefit and for actual settlement and cultivation, 
and must pay the legal fee and that part of the commissions required to be 
paid when entry is made, as follows : 

When within railroad limits, for 160 acres, fee $10, commission, ^8 ; 
for eighty acres, fee $5, commission, $i. Outside of railroad limits, fee 
$10, commission |4, and in proportion for eighty acres. When these re- 
quirements are complied with the Receiver issues his receipt in duplicate 
and the matter is entered upon the records of the office. After faithful 



observance of the law in regard to actual settlement and cultivation for 
the continuous term of five years, at the expiration of that term or within 
two years thereafter, final proof must be made, and, if satisfactory to the 
land ofl&cers, that part of the commissions remaining unpaid (the same in 
amount so paid on entry) must be paid. The Register then issues his 
certificate and makes proper returns to the general land office, as the basis 
of a patent. 

Any settler desiring to make final proof must first file with the Regis- 
ter a written notice of his intention, describing the land and giving the 
names of four witnesses by whom the facts as to settlement^ continuous 
residence, cultivation, etc., are to be established. This notice must be ac- 
companied by a deposit of money sufficient to pay the cost of publishing 
the notice which the Register is required to publish for thirty days (five 
times) in a newspaper designated by him, or arrange with the publisher 
of the paper therefor. Notice is also posted in the land office for the 
same period. 

Final proof cannot be made until the expiration of five years from 
date of entry, and must be made within two years thereafter. In making 
final proof the homestead settler may appear in person at the district land 
office with his witnesses and there make the affidavit and proof required, 
or he may, if by reason of bodily infirmity or distance, it is inconvenient for 
him to appear at the land office with his witnesses, appear before the judge of 
a court of record of the county and state or district and territory in which 
the land is situated, and there make final proof. When a homestead set- 
tler dies before he can prove up, the widow, or in case of her death, her 
heirs may continue settlement and obtain title upon requisite proof at the 
proper time. In case of death of both parents, leaving infant children, 
the homestead may be sold for cash for the benefit of the children, and 
the purchaser will receive the title. ' 

The sale of a homestead claim to another party before completion of 
title is not recognized. In making final proof the settler must swear that 
no part of the land has been alienated except for church, cemetery or 
school purposes, or right of way of railroad. 

Homestead claims may be relinquished, but in such case the land re- 
verts to the government. If a settler does not wish to remain five years 
on his tract, he may pay for it as under pre-emption law, in cash or war- 
rants, at any time after six months of actual residence. This proof must 
be made before the district officers. Homesteaders are allowed six months 
after entry to commence improvements and establish residence. 

The law allows but one homestead privilege to .any one person. 

Every person who served not less than ninety days in the army or 
navy of the United States during " the recent rebellion," who was honor- 
ably discharged and who has remained loyal to the government, may 
enter a homestead, and the time of his service shall be deducted from the 
period of five years, provided that the party shall reside upon and culti- 
vate his homestead at least one year after he commences improvements. 
The widow of a soldier, or, if she be dead or has married again, the minor 
heirs (if any) may, through their guardian, make a homestead entry, and 
if the soldier died in the service, the whole term of his enlistment will be 
credited upon the term of required residence. Soldiers and sailors as 
above may file a homestead declaratory statement for a 160 actes of land 
■ through an agent, after which they have six months to file their home- 
stead. This latter entry must be made in person. Thus a soldier who 


desires to secure a claim may do so by sending a power of attorney and 
certified copy of his discharge to some responsible party who can file for 
him up on the land selected. Lands acquired under the homestead laws 
are not liable for any debt contracted prior to the issuing of the patent 


Heads of families, widows or single persons (male or female) over 
the age of twenty-one years, citizens of the United States or who have de- 
clared their intention to become such under the naturalization laws, may 
enter upon any "offered "or" unoffered" lands or any unsurveyed lands 
to which the Indian title is extinguished, and purchase not exceeding 160 
acres under pre-emption laws. After making settlement, if on "offered" 
land the applicant must file his declaratory statement with the district 
land_ office within thirty days, for which a fee of |!i.00 is required, and 
within one year from date of settlement make final proof of his actual 
residence on and cultivation of the tract, and pay therefore at $1.35 per 
acre if outside of railroad limits, or $3.50 per acre if within these limits, 
and he ma,y pay in cash or by military bounty, land warrants, agricultural 
college, private claim or supreme court scrip. 

When the tract has been surveyed and is not " offered " land, the 
claimant must file his or her declaratory statement, and make proof and 
payment within thirty-three months from date of settlement. Settlement 
is the first thing to be done under the pre-emption laws. 

When settlements are made on unsurveyed lands, settlers are required 
to file their declaratory statements within three months after date of the 
receipt at the district land office, of the approved plat of the township em- 
bracing their claims, and make proof and payment within thirty months 
from the expiration of said three months, payments the same as in case 
of offered land. 

Pre-emptors may submit proof of residence and improvements at any 
time after six months of actual residence. He must show by his own tes- 
timony and by two credible witnesses such actual residence and cultiva- 
tion — a habitable dwelling and other improvements, to the satisfaction of 
the land officers that the spirit of the law has been complied with. 

At any time before the expiration of the time allowed for proof and 
payment, the settler may, by making proper application at the land office 
and payment of the required fee, convert his claim into a homestead, and 
the time he has resided upon the land is credited on homestead residence 
if he desires, ^o person who abandons his residence on his own land to 
reside on public laud in the same state or territory, or who owns 330 acres 
of land, is entitled to the benefits of the pre-emption laws. It is held, 
however, that this does not apply to a house and lot in town. Claims can- 
not be transferred uufil title is perfected. The second filing of a declar- 
atory statement by any pre-emptor, when the first filing was legal in all 
respects, is prohibited. Before proof and payment on pre-emption claim, 
written notice must be given by the claimants to the register, who must 
post a notice in his office and cause the same to be published in a newspa- 
per nearest the land for at least thirty days as in case of homesteads. 


Under the timber culture laws not more than 160 acres on any one 
section, entirely devoid of timber can be entered, and no person can make 
more than one entry thereunder. 


The qualifications of applicants are the same as under the pre-emption 
iuid homestead laws. The land office charges are, for 160 acres or more 
than eighty acres, 114 when entry is made and $4 at final proof. For 80 
acres or less, $9 at entry and $4 for final proof. The applicant must make 
affidavit that the land ^specified in his application is exclusively prairie, or 
other land devoid of timber, that his filing and entry is for the cultivation 
of timber for his exclusive use and benefit ; that the application is made in 
good faith and not for the purpose of speculation, or directly or indirectly 
for the use or benefit of any other person or persons ; that he intends to 
hold and cultivate the land and comply with the laws, and that he has not 
previously made an entry under the timber culture law. 

The party making an entry of a quarter section is required to break or 
plow five acres covered thereby during the first year, and five acres in addi- 
tion during the second year. The five acres broken or plowed during the 
first year he is required to cultivate by raising a crop, or otherwise, during 
the second year, and to plant in timber, seeds or cuttings during the 
fourth year. For entries of less than 160 acres the amount of land to be 
cultivated must be jorora^a. Provision is made for extension of time in 
case drought or grasshoppers destroy trees. These trees he must cultivate 
and protect, and if, at the expiration of eight years from date of entry, or 
at any time within five years thereafter, the entrant, or, if he be dead, his 
heirs, shall prove by two credible witnesses, the planting, cultivating and 
protecting the timber for not less than eight years, and that there were at 
the end of eight years at least 675 living, thrifty trees on each of the ten 
acres required to be planted, he, or they will be entitled to a patent. It 
should be added, that in making final proof it must be shown " not less 
than twenty-seven hundred trees were planted to each acre." Fruit trees 
are not considered timber in regard to cultivation of an entry under this 

It is not necessary that the ten acres should be in a compact body. 

Failure to comply with any of the requirements of the law, at any 
time after one year from date of entry, renders such entry liable to con- 
test. And upon due proof of such failure the entry will be cancelled. No 
land under this law will, in any event, become liable to the satisfaction of 
any debt or debts, contracted prior to the issuing of the final certificate 



WHILE compiling his index to Next of Kin advertisements, it occurred 
to Mr. Edward Preston that a summary of such advertisements might 
not only be amusing, but might chance to convey unexpected good news to 
some who should read it. For the same reason, and to give an idea of the 
character of such advertisements in general, we insert it in this Manual as 
it appeared in the London Times, with the comments of that paper upon it. 
When we consider that this summary is for only one year's advertisements 
in that one paper alone (the year 1876), we can form some idea of the 
magnitude of such advertising in the different newspapers of the whole 
civilized world, running through a hundred years or more : 

" Some twenty-six persons are shown to have died without relatives, 
as the Treasury Solicitor advertised for the Next of Kin (if any) to make 
out their relationship. The amount of money thus reverting to the Crown 
is rarely made public, but it has 'oozed out' in the notable case of Mrs. 
Helen Blake, of Kensington, that the sum was not less than £140,000 
personalty. In other cases large rewards were offered for marriage, bap- 
tismal, and burial certificates. A gentleman in distressed circumstances 
sought the representatives of a firm who carried on business in Calcutta in 
1816. A reward was offered for information of a lady who, when a girl, 
was taken from Canada to Australia. Next of Kin were sought for 
numerous persons who had left England and settled in the Colonies, the 
United States, or India. Unclaimed dividends of the Agriculturist 
Cattle Insurance Company awaited claimants. Good fortune awaited the' 
family of a certain cab driver. 

A reverend gentleman, son of a Lincolnshire draper, was wanted for 
something to -his advantage ; and a gentleman who left England in 1854,. 
was wanted to claim a certain residuary estate. Johann Bauer, born in 
1820, and last heard of at Sydney, was"" considered to be dead," without 
having left any Heir-at-Law, or by will, disposed of certain property ; it 
was therefore forfeited to the Next of Kin. A son was anxious for his 
mother's address ; two persons, living in London in 1831, or their descend- 
ants, were entitled to share in certain moneys. It would be to the advan- 
tage of a traveling herbalist to write to his wife ; and a miner in the North 
of England would find it to his advantage to make himself known. Nu- 
merous notices were issued by the Bank of England with reference to re- 
transfers of Unclaimed Stock or Dividends, from the Commissioners, for 
the Eeduction at the National Debt ; and a reward of £250 was offered for 
a clue to a marriage settlement by the relatives of a Testator, who, on his. 
death-bed, could only utter the words " Lincolu's-Inn Fields." 



The descendants of two persons of the name of Braat, born 1778 and 
1783, were wanted " for their own interests" ; a very old friend' from abroad 

longed to meet J. B., of B ; a person who went to sea many years ago, 

■and had not since been heard of, was entitled to funds ; and another who 
went to sea in 1859, was wanted for something "greatly" to his advantage 
— such notices as these are not uncommon. A niece was anxious to hear 
from her uncle ; " the friends she has left in England are all dead ; she is 
now holding a good situation, and she only wants to hear from her uncle." 
H. B. was anxious to communicate with the individual who called on him 
^'respecting property in Chancery" — there are many callers of this sort — 
and the relatives of a gentleman who went to, New Zealand in 1863, de- 
sired much to know his whereabouts. B.C., late of Ipswich, " whose father 
was a miller, aged 28," — so states the advertisement — was wanted for some- 
thing greatly to her advantage ; and a Hull pauper inherited £30,000 left 
him by a Scotch nobleman. 

The desoendantsof one family were entitled to £1?,000 ; those of an- 
other who, in 1798, were living in Bloomsbury, were anxiotisly sought ; 
and tidings of a person reported to have been drowned in 1830, in the Mer- 
rimac Eiver, would be liberally paid for. The N"ext of Kin of the Secre- 
tary of the late Earl Exmouth, were unknown ; and the Heirs of a per- 
son who emigrated to America as long ago as 1683, were wanted to claim 
$2,000,000. A father affectionately enquired for his daughter, who ran 
away from home. " She will learn with regret" — so ran the sad notice— 
"that her mother died recently" ; a son who left his home in 1850, was in- 
formed that something "very greatly to his advantage" awaited him — this 
advertisement was repeated many times in various newspapers. Some- 
thing good was notified for a person who went to New Jersey in 1823 — ^if 

dead, his Next of Kin were entitled ; Winifred , not having heard from 

her husband for twelve years, would be glad of any information within 
three months ; and a gentleman having left two legacies to charitable in- 
stitutions, which appear to have had no existence, claimants were sought. 

Claimants to lands in Canada, and the relatives of two brothers who 
were drowned at Montreal, were also the subject of Next of Kin notifica- 
tions. Inquiry-was made as to the investments or property of one person, 
and an " expectant legatee" was willing to pay handsomely for a clue to 
some funds supposed to have been deposited in a Bank ; a laborer was en- 
titled to a legacy ; and divers charitable institutions (including the Tem- 
porary Home for Lost or Starving Dogs), were invited to claim a share of 

a benevolent Testator's residuary estate. was requested to " write to 

Nephi Elsmore, Salt Lake City, Utah — it will be to his advantage"— some 
Tomance undoubtedly underlied this notice. Two sisters were informed of 
the sudden death of their brother at Melbourne ; and the Heirs of Ninian 

E , who was "a hind at Widdrington, in 1760," were unknown. The 

representatives of a certain merchant, who carried on business in the City 
of London, in 1820, were wanted for " something beneficial" ; like notices 
are very frequent, as Unexpected Assets often accrue. A son was anxious 

to hear from his " mother, sister, or brother" ; and Dinah , sought for 

something to her great advantage. The relatives of a captain, who died 
suddenly, were requested to communicate with the clergyman of the parish ; 
and the " Next of Kin of the author of ' Sam Slick' will hear of something 
pecuharly interesting to them on applying to ." Several domestic ser- 
vants were entitled to legacies ; a sister would hear of something to her ad- 
vantage if she would make herself known to her brother ; a gunner who 


deserted Her Majesty's service in 1863, or, if dead, his Next of Kin, were 
interested in an Irish Probate case ; the Heirs-at-Law of several persons of 
unsound mind, were inquired for under the Lunacy Eegulation Act ; and 
a lady who seems to have enjoyed the luxury of being married four times, 
was entitled to a legacy left by her sister ; the Heirs of a Spanish lady, an 
aged spinster of eighty-two, were inquired for by a Spanish _Court—" all 
those who think they have a right to the inheritance are invited to apply" ; 
this Advertisement opens up a wide field for claimants. The representa- 
tives of another lady who died in 1809, at the venerable age of ninety-four, 
were inquired for by the High Court of Justice. 

The following is rare : — " A Prussian gentleman named , is sup- 
posed to have fallen overboard or leapt into the sea, while on board a vessel 
bound for Mexico ; being an expert swimmer, he may have been picked up 
by a passing vessel ; if alive, he is implored to make known his where- 
abouts." Such an announcement as this naturally gives rise to a world 
of conjecture, and relatives are perhaps even now ingorant as to whether 
the imf ortunate Prussian is dead or alive. 

Solicitors were anxious to know if a certain lady " made a will of a 
more recent date than the one found at her death," and the Heirs of a Mr. 
-Jones, Superintendent of a Lunatic Asylum, in 1836, were now for the first 
time inquired for. A niece was entreated to communicate with her uncle ; 
and the representatives of the creditors of a person who died over forty 
years ago, are interested in a " windfall." A tailor would hear of some- 
thing to his advantage, on applying at his old shop ; and a son was informed 
of the death of his father at Charing Cross Hospital. An afflicted 
father was in search of his long-lost-sight-of-son ; and tidings would be 
most thankfully received by the mother of a Queensland emigrant — last 
heard of eleven years ago. 

The following contains a highly satisfactory announcement to a 
gentleman of the Jewish persuasion : — " Should this meet the eye of CM. 

Moses, by applying to he will find a legacy from his aunt." A 

Swiss paper had the following: — "T. Metzger (Heirs). All persona 
believing themselves to be heirs of the above, formerly Governor of Breda 
and Lieutenant-General of the Dutch Cavalry, are requested to communi- 
cate with , who is in possession of all documents necessary for the 

recovery of the inheritance." J. Mitchell, who disappeared from Oxford 

some years ago, was wanted to claim a legacy, and Elizabeth M , 

who left England in 1850 for New Zealand, was wanted for a like purpose. 

Colonial newspaper notices are remarkable for their pithiness. The 
following is from the Sydney Morning Herald: — "Henry Ormerod. — 
Wanted, information ; last heard of near Sydney ; father dead. Write 
Mrs. Ormerod." Something advantageous awaited a hair-dresser, late of 
Romney, Hants, and a son, resident in Australia, informed his father, 
brother, cousin, or any of his friends, that they could communicate with 

him at . The Next of Kin of several soldiers of our Lidian Army 

were wanted to claim various sums of money and effects. One of these 
soldiers had managed to save the sum of £308 19s. lid. The unknown 
nephews and nieces were wanted of a gentleman who died at Lisbon ; a 
person, last heard of in Queensland, was entitled to the residuary estate of 
his brother ; two sons were wanted to claim an estate left them by their 
father ; and the father of a child, left under the guardianship of a nurse, 
was informed that " his daughter died suddenly, to the great grief «f the 


A person who left Wales in 1857 was entitled to one-third of two 
farms ; a surplus awaited division among the owners of slaughter-houses 
shambles, etc., in the neighborhood of old Newgate Market ; and Mary 

Ann E was informed that "she will receive £800, left her by her 

father's friends," if she would only make herself known. A "Sailor 

Boy," who left his home early on , would hear of something to his 

advantage " by writing to Friend ." Preparatory to receiving prop- 
erty due to him under his grandfather's will, F. J. S. was earnestly 
requested to communicate with his friends at once.. 

The Next of Kin of a spinster, who died at Bath in 1795, were only 
now sought ; and the address of a father and son wanted by Solicitors 

in the following curious notice : — " Stacey, aged between 9 and 10 ; 

last heard of in care of his father ; believed to be tramping about the 
country with him." Janet Taylor, who left Stirlingshire about forty years 
ago, is interested in a Scotch Succession case ; and certain shareholders 
of the Star and Garter Hotel Company were wanted to claim a good 

The Heirs of persons in all stations of life are occasionally sought 
through the medium of what is known as a Next of Kin Advertisement. 
The description of L. S. is a " sausage-skin dresser " — an unsavory callings 
but, doubtless, a profitable one, as the Heirs were inquired for. J. T., who 
left England some years ago, is entitled to a share of his father's estate, 
" if he claims the same within two years." 

A gentleman for some years missing was requested to communicate 
with Solicitors " who hold money belonging to him, for which they desire 
to account," and the heirs of a J. B. Baron were stated to be entitled to no 
less than £800,000. 

Unexpected assets of a very large amount awaited the representatives 
of the creditors of a gentleman who died in 1740, and the Next of Kin of 
persons who held shares in the West New Jersey Society as long ago as 
1692-3 were entitled to funds; a student was implored to communicate 
with his parents ; and to J. B. the joyful intelligence is conveyed " that he 
has been adjudicated bankrupt, and may return home without fear of 
molestation." A counsel's clerk is requested to " call at address given him 
by the lady whom he courageously rescued from drowning, in order to be 
thanked for his gallant conduct in risking his life on that occasion." 
Fortunes have occasionally been left for gallant conduct of a similar 

Similar summaries to the foregoing for the years 1877-1882 have 
appeared in the following, among other newspapers, namely. Standard, 
Morning Post, Daily Neivs, Broad Arrow, and Laiv Journal. Space will 
not permit the reproduction of all these summaries, but the following are 
the more noticeable of the Kindred notices for 1882 : 

A lady who left England as long ago as 1826, or her children (if any), 
are wanted to share a legacy of £3,500 ; and a veterinary surgeon of Eus- 
sell Square, in 1830, is interested in a pedigree case pending in Chancery. 
A gentleman who went to New Zealand would like to hear from any 
relative or friend now living ; "it is thirty-three years since he heard from 
home, so full accounts of family, caries de vis'ite, etc., would be gladlv 
received." J. G., of Mexico in 1832, and D. G., at one time of Ohio, are 
entitled to shares in an estate ; the descendants of E. B., who left England 
in 1810, are sought; and a large reward is offered for proof of the death 
of S. A., at one time a barmaid. • 


The creditors of a late noble lord are informed that a sum of £4,000 
is now divisible among them ; by the deatli of his aunt, a sailor is entitled 
to freeholds ; and a soldier who deserted from the Uhlan Guard, at Berlin, 
is among the missing ones wanted. J. D., of Bermuda in 1845, is believed 
to have been lost at sea ; and J. W. H., " of the Kooky Mountains," is 
interested in his father's estate ; L. H. is wanted to administer the estate 
of her late husband, a Canadian farmer ; while J. M., missing for many 
years, is presumed to be dead, and his wife is applying for letters of 
administration to his estate in Ireland. There were many similar appli- 
cations to the Court of Session, under the Presumption of Life Limitation 
(Scotland) Act, by Next of Kin anxious to possess themselves of the 
estates of their missing relatives. 

News is sought of a baronet, last heard of in Sydney, beheved to have 
gone to Fiji ; also of F. W. C, who is supposed to have gone to Canada. 
A. H., born in Burmah in 1853, married in 1869, went to sea in 1870, is 
among the lucky ones wanted for something to their advantage ; and J. 
O'C, an apprentice on board a merchant vessel, last heard of in 1865 from 
a sailors' home, is asked to claim his estate, otherwise his sister will take 
the initiative. 

E. P. died in Paris in 1871, and his Next of Kin are wanted to claim 
£591 Consols, with accumulated interest. H. K. N., first of Nat^l, then 
of the Australian gold-diggings, last heard of in New Zealand, is desired to 
make his whereabouts known ; and Bridget R., who left Ireland for 
England thirty years ago, is entitled to share the estate of a brother who 
died in Australia. 

A commission has been issued to take evidence as to the Heirs in 
England of E. R., who died suddenly in Bombay, and the nephews and 
nieces sought of W. T., who died in Portugal ; A. M., last heard of in 
New York, is wanted for his own benefit ; and W. T., once of Queensland, 
is a residuary legatee ; Rudolph K., formerly of Western Australia, and 
afterwards of Colombo, is anxiously inquired for ; also the Next of Kin of 
Sir M. B. C, at one time of Jamaica, and afterwards of Scotland. 

A man known as " Charcoal Dick," who left the Ballarat diggings for 
England, is informed -that £4,000 or £5,000 lies in the Geelong Bank, and 
between 200 and 300 ounces of gold-dust in the Gold Treasury ; and a 
reward is offered for proof of the death of J. E. S., who left Oxford 
twenty-five years ago. This individual seems to have had a chequered 
career. He is described as of "roving habits, tall, fine-built, but with 
club-foot, by trade a trunk-maker ; believed to have exhibited a stufE.ed 
calf with ;two heads and seven legs ; sometimes did a httle business in 
booths in the art of self-defense." 

If W. 0. S. does not come forward and prove that he was in this 
country at a given date, he will forfeit a share of his mother's estate ; and 
the landlord of J. W. threatens to take possession of a house greatly 
iniured by J. W.'s prolonged absence. 

In 1682, a lady of title devised certain lands ; the heirs or assigns of 
such devises are now sought ; also the Heir -male of T. R., of Oxford, in 
1685 Merchants, shippers, consignees, captains, seamen, and others who 
may have sustained losses by the Confederate cruisers, are inquired for in 
connection with the Geneva Award. The Q. C. who is executor of a will 
bequeathing property of A, J. S., is desired to make himself known; and 
T. R., aged seventy, is entitled to a final dividend. 

About £5,000 is divisible in respect of certain tithe renewal funds ; 


the creditors of one J. S. are entitled to £700 ; whilst another J. S. (a 
retired Sergeant-Ma j or E. I. 0. S.), is wanted for something to his benefit. 

Persons having private property or papers belonging to J. L. Y. (late 
of the Hussars), are sought ; and the guardians of Mary B. D. M. (aged 
three years), are wanted, respecting matters of " great pecuniary impor- 
tance." Fred J. B., a midshipman, of Brisbane, in 1866 ; and R. C, Jate 
engineer on a ship plying on the Shanghai River, are both wanted for 
something to their advantage ; also the son of a clergyman last heard of 
in New Zealand. The representatives of R. 0. (excise officer), who left 
this country for the United States thirty years ago, are wanted ; and a 
notice headed "Bequest" inquires for W. G., formerly of Belfast and 
lately of New York. 

Valuable property has been left to G. C. ; and W. H., last heard of at 
the Diamond Fields, South Africa, is a missing Legatee. Information is 
desired as to the property of a deceased Major ; also a clue to several large 
sums due to the estate of 0. R. H. Sylvius L. or his representatives are 
interested in the estate of an Indian Judge who died in 1820 ; A. L. (nee 
F. de Celigny), or her Heirs are wanted; and Judy, Michael and Pat 
Donohoe sought by the Irish Court of Probate. 

J. McL. had an account with some banker unknown to his Next of 
Kin, and a clue is desired thereto. J. W. K. F. M., last heard of at Sur- 
rey Hills, Sidney ; W. H. of Hobart Town, and the representatives of R. 
P., who died in 1848, are all sought in connection with property at Lime- 

J. M., who left England in the Lalla Roohh in 1848, informs his rela- 
tives that they can hear of him at Pretoria ; the Heirs of M. M., who in 
1844 owned lands in Oeylon, are wanted ; and J. E. J. W., last heard of at 
Orange Free State, is entitled to a share of his aunt's estate. A Bombay 
firm desire to know if a certain lieutenant is alive, as they hold a policy 
on his life ; while S. D., formerly of Perth, in consequence of the death 
of his brother is wanted for' something greatly to his advantage. 

One result of the unfortunate " Palmer Expedition " is that persons 
having property of the deceased in their hands are inquired for ; while in 
the case of the estate of Mr. Walter Powell, M. P. (^ost at sea in a bal- 
loon), probate has been granted, death being assumed. 

In addition to these multifarious notices many claimants were sought 
by the Bank of England authorities as to unclaimed Stocks and Dividends ; 
the Treasury Solicitor advertised for Next of Kin in some forty " Crown 
windfall" cases; and the Crown Agents for the Colonies gave London. 
Gazette pubhcity to a long list of Cape Intestates, the Unknown Heirs 
being entitled to about £30,000. 



BEFOEE quoting statistics as to these Funds, it may be useful to give 
a little historical information (gathered from a Blue Book on 
Chancery Funds), as to the origin of the Accountant-General's OflBce, and 
as to the amount of funds belonging to the Suitors. 

In the olden time the Masters in Chancery had the custody of all 
moneys and effects deposited in Court in the suits referred to them, and 
the Usher took charge of any property brought into Court in suits which 
had not been referred to one of the Masters. The Masters and the Usher 
were responsible for all moneys and other property received by them, and 
were bound to distribute the property so entrusted to them by Orders of the 
Court. In the meantime they employed the money in their hands for their 
own benefit. This practice continued until the bursting of the South Sea 
Bubble, when it was found that several of the Masters were defaulters. 
The defalcation amounted to over £100,000 ; it was made good by increased 
fees on the Suitors, and stringent precautions were taken to prevent a 
recurrence of such a scandal. Each Master was directed by an Order of the 
Lord Chancellor of 1724 to procure and send to the Bank of England a 
chest with one lock, and hasps for two padlocks ; the key of the lock to be 
kept by the Master, the key of one of the padlocks by one of the sis Clerks 
in Chancery, and the key of the other by the Governor or Cashier of the 
Bank. Each Master was ordered to deposit in his chest all moneys and 
securities in his hands belonging to the suitors, and the chests were then 
to be locked up and left in the custody of the Bank, and to be so kept that 
the Masters might have easy access thereto, under Orders of the Court. 
This plan did not work well, for it was found that by the rules of the 
Bank of England the vault where the chests were kept could not be 
opened unless two of the Directors were present with their keys; and 
it was soon found that great trouble, diflBiculty and expense would be occa- 
sioned to the Suitors by requiring the attendance of no less than five 
officials whenever any of the chests had to be opened to deliver out effects 
and to receive the interest due. In 1725. therefore, a General Order was 
made directinff that all money and effects should be taken from the Masters'^ 
chests and given into the custody of the Bank. Duplicate accounts were 
to be kept at the Bank and at the Chancery Report Office, and any dealing 
with the Suitor's money was to be certified to the Eeport Office. Another 
General Order extended the plan to moneys and effects m the custody of 

the Usher of the Court. . ^ ^, n ^ ^ ni. 

In 1726 the first Aocountant-General of the Court of Chancery was' 
appointed, and all funds in the custody of the Masters or Ushers wero' 



transferred to his charge. An act of Parliament passed in 1725, gives 
power to appoint an Accountant-General, and contains elaborate proyisions 
with reference to the custody and safety of the Suitors' Fands. The fol- 
lowing section evidently points to the misappropriations above referred 

" To the end that all misapplications or wastings of the subject's 
money by any officer of the High Court of Chancery may be entirely pre- 
vented for the future. Be it therefore further enacted that the Account- 
ant-General shall not meddle with the actual receipt of any of the money 
or efEects of the Suitors, but shall only keep the account with the Bank 
and the said Accountant-General, observing the rules hereby presented, 
or hereafter to be presented to him by the said Court, shall not be answer- 
able for any money or efEects which he shall not actually receive ; and the 
Bank of England shall be answerable for all the moneys and efEects of 
the Suitors which are or shall be actually received by them." 

Having thus glanced at the origin of the office of Accountant-General 
to the Court of Chancery, a word or two as to the funds dealt with by the 
Court may not be out of place here. Prom the Annual Budget of the 
Paymaster-General it appears that the receipts for the year ending 31st 
August, 1880, added to the securities then in Court, made up a grand total 
of £95,504,487 9s. 5d. After deducting payments during the year there 
remained in hand £75,108,835 5s. Id., exclusive of foreign currencies of 
the value of about £400,000. These enormous sums were mainly thus 
invested : 

Consolidated 3 per cent. Annuities, £4 7,543,458 9s. 9d. ; cash, 
£5,334,015 15s. 4d. ; reduced 3 per cent. Annuities, £5,855,591 16s. 
lOd. ; new 3 per cent. Annuities, £8,470,314 6s. 9d. The residue was 
made up of India Stock, Exchequer Bills, Metropolitan Consolidated 
Stocks, and^Stocks of most of the leading Kailway, Dock and other Com- 

After being informed of these extraordinary investments, no one will be 
surprised to hear that very considerable sums of Unclaimed Money have, 
from time to time, accumulated ; in fact, the Royal Courts of Justice have 
been built almost entirely with the surplus interest of the Suitors' money. 
By an Act passed iij 1865 power is given to apply £1,000,000 from funds 
standing in the books of the Bank of England to an account entitled : 
"Account of securities purchased with surplus interest arising from securi- 
ties carried to the account of moneys placed out for the benefit" and better 
security of the Suitors of the Court of Chancery." 

It would seem, therefore, that these unclaimed funds have been 
utilized to lighten the burden of taxation, it being impossible to divide the 
surplus interest among the Suitors. 

The Dormant Funds have frequently been the subject of investiga- 
tion. From a Eeturn presented to Parliament in 1829, it appears that the 
total amount of Stock on which the dividends had not been received for 
twenty years and upwards previous to that date (1839), was £1^37,904 ; for 
fifteen years. £33,388; for ten years, £70,498; and for five years, 
£301,558. The total amount of Suitors' Stock then in Court was £38,- 

In 1853 the Suitors' Further Eelief Act was passed. By it the Lord 
Chancellor was empowered to cause an investigation to be made into the 
several accounts standing in the name of the Accountant-General to the 
credit of any cause or matter, the dividends of which had not been dealt 


■with for fifteen years or upwards, and if, and when, he should be of opinion, 
that it was not probable that any claim would be made for the same, to 
make Orders for the appropriation of the future dividends or such part of 
such dividends as he should be of opinion might safely and properly be 
so appropriated, for the benefit of the Suitors, and for the carrying the same 
over to an account, to be entitled "The Suitors' Unclaimed Dividend 
Account" and for the carrying over, from time to time, such part of 
the cash standing to the last mentioned account, as he might think fit, to 
the credit of " The Suitors' Fee Fund Account." Directions were also 
given for a similar investigation to be made at the expiration of every five 

The first investigation under the provisions of the foregoing Act was 
made in 1854. By a Return made to the House of Commons in July, 
1854, it appears that the number of accounts undealt with for fifteen years 
previously to 1st May, 1854, was 566, and the total amount of such Stock 
£256,175 3s. 8d., the total amount of Suitors' Stock then in Court being 
£46,000,000. In 1855, a list containing the titles of such accounts, but 
not stating the amounts, was printed and exhibited in the Chancery Offices, 
with the following highly satisfactory result : " Many persons came for- 
ward and preferred their claims, and about one-half of the Stock supposed 
to be unclaimed was transferred out of Court to successful claimants." 
A fact for skeptical people to ponder over, and very encouraging news for 

In 1860 and 1866, similar lists were published, but the total amount 
of funds then lying dormant does not appear therein. The investigations 
under the " Suitors' Further Rehef Act" are of a limited character, and 
do not apply to many unclaimed funds invested by the Accountant-General 
under the provisions of the " Infant Legacy Act," the " Trustee Rehef 
Act," and other Acts. 

The first investigation into the amount of Suitors' Unclaimed Cash 
in Court was made in 1850, and a Return was presented to Parliament 
showing the result as follows : 

Number of accounts 4,013 ; valuation (cash and stocks), £562,039. 
This Return does not include cash arising from interest or dividends on 
the Unclaimed Stock. 

When Mr. Lowe (now Lord Sherbrooke), was Chancellor of the 
Exchequer, Rev.W. St. J. "Wheelhouse, M. P., at the request of an influen- 
tial deputation, put himself into communication with Mr. Lowe, with a 
view to having greater publicity given to the Ust of Unclaimed Funds in 
Chancery, but Mr. Lowe could not be prevailed upon to alter the arrange- 
ments then existing, namely, — exhibiting the Ust in the Chancery Offices. 
However, in 1872, the Court of Chancery Funds Act was passed, and by 
the Rules made thereunder a List of Dormant Funds in Chancery was 
ordered to be triennially published in the London Gazette. The first list 
under the new Act was looked for in 1873, but it did not see the light till 
March, 1877. It contained about 2,500 entries, some of them curious. 
Thus :— 

"Joseph Barlow— Absent beyond seas; Bowden v. Bayley — The 
account of unpaid claimants entitled to £100 each ; Bryan v. Collins — 
The accumulated account ; Biixter v. Facherell— The schooling and ap- 
prenticing fund ; Bleadon v. Haynes — The plough, furniture, stock, and 
effects account ; Brooks v. Levey— The legatees' and annuitants' account ; 
Sophia Deacle— Present address unknown; Bryant v. Story— Legacy 


bequeathed for the relief of widows and] orphans of soldiers killed in war ; 
in the matter of the proceeds of derelict property brought into the Port 
of Nassau, in New Providence, and sold for the benefit "of the rightful 
owner when appearing, according to the Act 12 Anne, c. 18, s. 2 ; Drever 
V. Maudsley — The one hundred years term account ; Gurden v. Badcock — 
The creditors under the deed of 2nd September, 1791 ; Heyden v. Owen — 
The account of the seamen belonging to H.M. ships Decade and Argonaut; 
Milner v. Gilbert — The foreign securities and shares account ; Mason v. 
Gee-The descended estate ; Prince v. Bourjot-The ten hogsheads account; 
Winter v. Kent — Fund to answer the unclaimed legacy given by the will 
of the testator, James Underbill ; "Wroughton v. "Wroughton — The plate 
and picture account; Yates v. Eawlins — The account of Shareholders 
who did not come in to substantiate their claims ; the account of the un- 
claimed legacy of Sebastian Nash de Brissac." 

In addition to the foregoing the Bank of England is custodian of a 
number of boxes, etc., belonging to the Suitors. The following are the 
most noticeable items : 

" A box containing small articles of jewelry ; a paper marked, 'George 
Colman, Will'; abox marked, 'Diamond Necklace, Coronet and Barrmgr; 
a box containing plate and other articles ; a bag of clipped money, etc , 
(Jones V. Lloyd, August, 1736) ; two boxes containing plate, belonging to 
a person of unsound mind." 

Complaints were made in the House of Commons of the delay in 
issuing the List, and reform in this respect was promised. 

The second List was not issued until 23 June, 1881. It contains some 
4,000 entries, each'representing an unclaimed fund of £50 or upwards. 
No improvement in the form of the list was observable, and the following 
notice of motion was given in the House of Commons : 

" Me. Stanley Leighton. — Dormant Funds in Chancery. — To call 
attention to the unsatisfactory form in which the list of causes, to the 
credit of which unclaimed money belonging to the suitors is standing, is 
issued ; and to move, — That future lists be strictly alphabetically arranged, 
with cross-references to the sub-titles ; together with the names and last 
known addresses of the persons originally entitled ; the date of the last 
decree or order ; and the amount unclaimed. 

On March 10, 1882, an interesting debate arose on Mr. Leighton's 
motion, of which the following is a short summary : 

Mr. Leighton observed that an abuse existed which might be readily 
and easily removed. The magnitude of the question was apparent when it 
was considered that many millions of money passed through the hands of 
the Paymaster in Chancery every year. Large sums of the suitors' money 
were borrowed to enable the Chancellor of the Exchequer to carry through 
his financial operations, and the New Palace of Justice had been mainly 
. built with the surplus interest of the suitors' money. In 1881 Mr. Glad- 
stone borrowed no less than £40,000,000 of the suitors' money for National 
Debt purposes. Therefore the suitors had some claim to consideration. 
The letter and the spirit of Acts of Parliament were in favor of publicity, 
which, indeed, was called for by common honesty. In the olden time, the 
Suitors' funds had been misappropriated by high ofiicials, who were heavily 
fined. In our own time. Orders have been passed to the effect that a list 
of dormant funds should be published every three years, and in alphabet- 
ical order. It was not published every three years, and when published, it 
was not in alphabetical order Names and addresses ought to 


be giyen. This was done in the lists issued by the India Office and the 
War Office ; some of these lists were replete with suggestive details, and 
would serve as useful models for our Chancery officials. The result of 
publishing insufficient information was that encouragement was given to 
the levying of blackmail. If proper lists were published, claimants would 
not have to pay a fancy percentage for information. The usual answer to 
these complaints was that unfounded claims had to be guarded against ; 
but it was equally the duty of other Government departments to protect 
themselves against unfounded claims, and they did it without making a 
secret of information that ought to be published. What would be thought 
of a member of this House if he found in the Library a pocket-book con- 
taining bank-notes, and said nothing about it for fear an unfounded claim 
should be made ? In respect to these funds, the Government were trustees, 
with duties to the pubhc ; and they were bound to give all the information 
they could. The true owners were those who would be claimants if they 
had the knowledge of their rights. The knowledge was kept back by the 
Office, which held and utilized the money. A stereotyped official reply had 
hitherto been given ; but what he wished to do was to sweep away the cob- 
webs of officialism, and to secure the publication of intelligible lists. (Hear, 

Mr. Findlanter seconded the motion. He highly approved of the 
form of index suggested .... the present system tended to confuse 
searchers .... officials might say that the present lists were sufficient, 
but the public were not satisfied, and the interests of the public ought to 
be first considered in the matter. Grave scandals sometimes occurred in 
consequence of the non-publication of information. His attention had re- 
cently been called to a care before the Master of the EoUs, in Ireland, from 
which it appeared that a clerk in the Accountant-General's Office in Ire- 
land, had communicated, it was supposed innocently, to a solicitor in Dub- 
lin, the fact that a derelict fund of £8,000 was remaining in Court. The 
consequence was that the solicitor, having looked at the file of proceedings, 
communicated with the parties interested, and made a bargain with them 
that, if he told them of that particular fund,- he should get one-third ot the 
£8,000. The Master of the EoUs strongly animadverted on the matter, 
expressing a hope that that would be the last occasion on which, either 
casually or by design, such a communication would be made, and also a 
hope that steps would be taken to compel publication of accounts of 
derelict funds. In Ireland they had no Act similar to that under which 

even those defective lists were published in England Measures, he 

thought, ought to be adopted, both in this country and jn Ireland, to pre- 
vent the appropriation of these funds by the Governmen t. 

The Attorney-Genekal. — These Dormant Funds amounted to about 
a hundredth part only of the total Chancery funds, and consisted, for the 
most part, of very small amounts.* After a lapse of time they were not 
thought sufficiently important for persons to make out a claim, because 
they were so small. The list was not made out in strictly alphabetical 

order ; but an alteration in that respect might be made If there 

was an obligation to publish the list every three years, it certainly ought 

to be fulfilled The further information desired would involve great 

labor and trouble as to small amounts, which the Paymaster could not 
undertake He was quite sure that in this country, however poor 

* Tais is a mistake ; each fund represents a sum of £50 or upwards ; the very smaU amounts 
are not published at all. 


a man might be, he would be able to employ a solicitor. .... Those hav- 
ing practical acquaintance with the whole question, thought that sufficient 
information was already furnished, to enable persons who had a claim, to 
■support it, while shutting out those who made a trade of the matter. 

Mr. Salt. — What was wanted was sufficient publicity without too 
much of it It might be well that the lists should be published an- 
nually instead of triennially. 

Mr. Donaldson" Hudson. — The funds did not always consist of small 
amounts, as had been stated by the Attorney-General. He knew a case in 
which upwards of £10,000 had been paid into the Suitors' Fund, where it 
totally escaped notice for twenty years without earning any interest for 
those entitled to the money. (Hear.) When a private person applied, all 
information was refused ; the employment of a solicitor was essential. It 
was rather hard that those who had only small sums in Chancery should 
be refused all information except they employed a solicitor The result 
was that some of those interested never got their money. Unless the 
lists were properly published, these Dormant Funds would go on increasing. 

De. Lyoks suggested that instead of claimants having to employ a 
solicitor, a fee of Is. should be charged each applicant, as at Somerset 
House. He would like to see a similar step taken with regard to unclaimed 
stock and dividends in the public funds. (Hear, hear.) 

Me. Gray regretted that the Attorney-General had not referred to 
the subject of cross-indexes. The adoption of such a system would, he 
thought, be of advantage to the parties interested. He could not under- 
stand how it was that the motion was opposed. For his own part, he be- 
lieved that, if carried, it would be attended with beneficial results. 

The motion was unfortunately defeated by a niajority of 19, but the 
question is too important to the public to be allowed to slumber. 

On March 9, 1883, Mr. Stanley Leighton renewed his motion, and the 
Attorney-General promised that future Lists should contain sufficient in- 
formation for legitimate claimants ; the amount standing to the credit of 
each suit would be given. The next List would be published soon after 30 
September, 1883. 

The debate was commented on in the leading newspapers, thus : — 

Times. — The subject of Dormant Funds in Chancery is one which 
relates to a matter of the greatest importance to a vast number of persons. 
A hundredth part of the Suitors' Funds mean more than £751,000. Look- 
ing at the question from the Suitors' point of view, it must be admitted that 
each person would prefer reading over the list himself, and finding there 
the clue which would lead to the discovery he hopes to make .... the 
particulars exist which might enable much of this money to be successfully 
claimed. It would, no doubt, be a work of some labor to re-publish the 
present list with the addition of all the information suggested, but it might 
be done if some official were told ofE to compile from the records the 
necessary facts. We can see no difficulty in providing effectual remedies 
against the abuses contemplated by the Attorney-General, 

Observer. — Mr. Leighton has done good service in calling public atten- 
tion to the funds now lying dormant in Chancery, and it is to be hoped 
that things will not be allowed to remain as they are. At intervals lists of 
these unclaimed funds are indeed pubhshed, but they are lists which any 
man of business would be ashamed of. 

Standard.- — Owners for these funds could presumably be found if 
proper facilities were afforded for investigation. If the existing lists were 


modified in the sense proposed by Mr. Stanley Leighton, there is no 
doubt that a large proportion of these Dormant Funds would find their 
way into the pockets of their rightful owners. 

The next list of Dormant Funds will be looked for wi£h some curi- 
osity. The one on which the debate arose was out of print soon after it 
was issued. Its great value may be estimated by the fact that the legal 
papers reprinted it in eztenso. 

A good precedent for the suggested improvement in form of the List 
is a notice issued "for general information," by order of the Secretary of 
State for India, in 1879. That notice was published in the leading news- 
papers, and contains a List of "Unclaimed Balances," amounting to 
upwards of £10,000, and it gives the following particulars : — (1) date when 
account opened ; (2) title of account ; and (3) amount in Government 
securities and Cash awaiting claimants. It is, not, therefore, easy to under- 
stand why information voluntarily given by one Department of the State 
should be refused by another. — Preston's tlnclaimed Money. 

The following is from the London Law Journal of recent date, and 
will be found interesting in this connection : 

" The publication by the Chancery Pay Office of the Hist of causes 
having balances to their credit, which have not been dealt with for fifteen 
years, is likely to produce much investigation, and to give rise to many 
expectations, some reasonable and others absurd. If the document pene- 
trates across the Atlantic; as in all probability it will, some heart-stirring 
may be expected among our American cousins, some of whom are credited 
with extravagant notions as to the fortunes merely waiting to be claimed 
by them in England. In 1855 the first of the lists was published — not 
printed, we believe, but exhibited in the Chancery offices — and, according 
to the report of the Chancery Funds Commissioners, ' many persons came 
forward and preferred their claims, and about one-half the stock supposed 
to be unclaimed was transferred out of Court to successful claimants.' 
This result is encouraging to investigators of the list ; but, of course, the 
gleaners of 1855, being the first comers, had by far the best opportunities. 
In 1872 the Chancery Funds Act was passed, and the rules made in 1874, 
under the authority of that Act, after providing (Rule 90) that 'the 
Chancery Paymaster may, in his discretion, on a request in writing, sup- 
ply such information with respect to any transactions in the Chancery 
Pay Office as may from time to time be required in any particular case,' 
continue (Rule 91) as follows : 

As soon as conveniently, may be after September 1, 1875, and after 
the same day in every succeeding third year, a list shall be prepared by 
the Chancery Paymaster, and filed in the Report Office, and a copy thereof 
shall be inserted in the London Gazette, and exhibited in the several offices 
of the Court, of the titles of the causes and matters in the books at the 
Chancery Pay Office (other than the causes or matters referred to in Rule 
92), to the credit of which any securities or any money amounting to or 
exceeding £50 may be standing, which money, or the dividends on which 
securities, have not been dealt with by the Accountant-General, or by the 
Chancery Paymaster (otherwise than by the continuous investment or 
placing on deposit of dividends) during the fifteen years immediately 
preceding such September 1-, and no information shall be given by the 
Chancery Paymaster respecting any money or securities to the credit of a 
cause or matter contained in any such list, until he has been furnished 
with a statement in writing by a Solicitor, requiring such information, of 


the name of the person on whose behalf he applies, and that, in such 
Solicitor's opinion, the applicant is beneficially interested in such money 
or securities.' 

As soon as conveniently, might be after September 1, 1875, was 
found to be no earlier than March 1, 1877, when the second list was pub- 
lished. Some impression on the unclaimed funds must have been made 
after that list was issued ; and, now the third list has arrived, it will, no 
doubt, be found less open to attack, but still not to be overlooked by the 
enterprising. The object of the rule was, doubtless, that there should be 
a list every three years, but this intention has not been observed. It was 
only after some correspondence in these columns, and other pressure, that 
the present list is now produced. It has been suggested that the amount 
standing to the credit of the cause should, be published, as well as its name. 
Some of the amounts would probably make the mouth water, and perhaps 
the officials are wise in not offering too tempting a bait to the cupidity of 
persons who may not be over-scrupulous in backing their claims. No 
amount, it should be observed, is less than £50 — a sum to which even the 
richest do not usually object. There is, therefore, quite sufficient induce- 
ment to any one who may think he has an interest in the cause, to make 
inquiries. The names of some 3,000 causes are open to be scanned 
by hopeful eyes. The fact that the amount of the prize is unknown may, 
perhaps, add zest to the pursuit. But the fact that the property of 
the Chancery Division of the High Court amounts to a sum nearer 
£100,000,000 than £50,000,000 sterling— a not unhandsome slice of which 
is unclaimed — shows that much is to be won. The bulk of the enormous 
sum in the hands of the Chancery Division is, of course, left there, even 
when dividends are unclaimed for fifteen years. The Court is the great 
administrator of property which executors, trustees, and others prefer not 
to take the responsibility of distributing for themselves ; and trusts for 
accumulation, life interests, and other causes, account for much that is 
left untouched for many years. Still, there are sure to be some happy 
discoveries, resulting in the receipt of welcome sums. Acute and perse- 
vering investigators need not fear that enough will not be left out of their 
leavings to finish the New Law Courts, and we hope that many of them 
will be successful in rescuing comfortable sums from the maw of the 
Commissioners for the Eeduction of the National Debt. 

Not so practically important, but more interesting to the average 
reader, is the list of 'boxes and other miscellaneous effects' remaining in 
the Bank of England to the credit of the Chancery Division. Compared 
with the list of causes with balances unclaimed for fifteen years, the list of 
boxes is short, but it gives some details which might well be given in the 
longer list. Most of the causes are marked with the ' letter, year, and 
number' which now appears in the title of every cause, the most material 
part of which is the year in which the writ was issued. The year is, of 
course, a useful guide to the searcher, and in future issues of the list of 
causes with unclaimed balances, we hope that it will appear, as well as in 
the list of boxes. It may be assumed that the causes in this latter list, 
which contain no numbers and letters, were commenced before it became 
the practice so to identify causes — that is, before 1853. Only one of those 
not so identified contains any indication of the date of the cause. All the 
rest must, therefore, be treated as ' aged,' like the horses whose years are 
not given in one of Mr. Tattersall's catalogues. One box is not identified 
even by the name of a cause, but is described simply as ' a box containing 


small articles of jewelry.' It will probably be long before the contents of 
this box adorns any place more becoming than the Bank cellars, but even 
its chance of revisiting the light is not hopeless. Not long since, we 
related in these columns a romantic story .of a similar box, the contents of 
which had been long condemned to the same obscurity. The Bank serv- 
ants, some years ago, laid hands upon it, and it fell to pieces when 
touched. It was found to contain a quantity of plate of the period of 
Charles II. There was also a bundle of love letters, of the time of the 
Eestoration, which performed the prosaic office of disclosing the owner of 
the plate, which his representative duly received. There are several 
entries of ' plate, jewelry and trinkets,' heirlooms, no doubt, of value and 
interest ; otherwise they would hardly be where they are ; one of 'family 
relics,' and one of 'presentation plate.' Many of the contents are 
■described vaguely as 'securities,' and some as 'promissory notes' — baits 
which will not tempt investigation so strongly as solid silver. One box is 
marked, 'His Majesty, the King of Spain, v. Valles and others; securities,' 
but we have no clue to which king it was, or whether the securities are 
Spanish bonds. A little investigation would, probably, soon disclose the 
owner of most of this property. The Chancery Division does not, it must 
be .confessed, take a very high view of its duties in reference to the prop. 
«rty deposited with it. If a trustee, who found himself possessed of valu- 
able property belonging to his beneficiaries, were to use no more diligence 
to discover their owner than does the Chancery Division, no judge would 
fail to pronounce him guilty of a grave breach of duty. The highest 
Court of Equity in the Kingdom contents itself with playing a sort of 
game of hunt the slipper with the public. If ownership is satisfactorily 
proved, the Court will disgorge, but not otherwise. With regard to 
unclaimed funds and other property of long standing, an official ought to 
be appointed to discover by all the means available, and by advertisement, 
whose they are. As it is, the public are left to trust to the ingenuity and 
penetratioa of themselves and their legal advisers." 




IN the category of successful claims on the Government for the refund- 
ing of estates which had reverted to the Crown by reason of persons 
dying intestate and leaving no known Next of Kin, is a singular case 
decided by the late Vice-Chancellor Malins. The facts were these : — In 
December, 1871, Mrs. Maria Mangin Brown, then of Hertford Street, 
Mayf air, died intestate, leaving personal property of the value of more 
than £300,000, and with no Next of Kin ; the Treasury Solicitor took 
possession of her estate on behalf of the Crown, and paid all expenses of 
administration, Advertisements were then issued in the following form : — 

" Next of Kin. — Brown. — The i Relations or Next of Kin of Maria 
Mankin Brown, late of Hertford Street, Mayfair, who died on the 21st 
December, 1871, are requested to apply to the Solicitor of the Treasury, 
Whitehall, London." 

Fourteen persons came in und^ this Advertisement, but only four of 
them succeeded in establishing their claims. These lucky four were 
Italians, residing abroad at the time of Mrs. Mangin Brown's death. The 
matter came on by petition, praying for payment of £192,535, the bal- 
ance of the above sum of £200,000, to the petitioner, Fillippo Tomasso 
Mattia Freccia, after providing for succession duty and costs. After 
some discussion between Counsel, the Vice-Chancellor made the order as 

Part of the funds had been paid out of Court, in pursuance of the 
Vice-Chancellor's Order, when several new claimants appeared on the 
scene, and a stop-order was obtained on the remaining funds in Court. 
A Special Examiner was appointed, a vast' amount of evidence taken 
before the Chief Clerk, as to the genuineness of the alleged relationship 
of the new claimants. 

The case was carried to the House of Lords, and in June, 1880, their 
Lordships affirmed the Order of the Vice-Chancellor. 

One or two curious things concerning the lady whose estate has been 
the subject of such expensive litigation deserve a passing notice. It 
seems that the denizens of London are indebted to this Mrs. Brown for a 
very beautiful drinking fountain, placed in Park- lane, close to the house 
wherein she resided for upwards of forty years. This work of art is said 
to have cost £5,000. It is also stated that this lady had in contempla- 
tion the formation of swimming baths in various parts of London at a 
large outlay, and that when the Metropolitan Board of Works desired to 



take her house for the purpose of widening Hamilton place, she proposed 
to carry out, at her own cost, an alternative scheme, the estimate -for 
which was £50,000; that the deeds were, it is stated, prepared, but the 
lady died before she could carry out her good intentions. 

Lest it should be thought that the Mangin Brown case is an isolated 
one. and that it is impossible for many people to die without known rela- 
tives, I may say that between thirty and forty such cases annually occur. 
Those for 1883 are as follows :— 

Beresford, John P. (Middlesex). 

Briggs. Eliza (Somerset). 

Brown, Thos. (York). 

Butler, Mary Ann (Middlesex). 

Cain (or Kane, Michael (Chester). 

Chandler, Jno. (ship's cook) died at sea. 

Crook, Maria (Middlesex). 

Daly, John (Middlesex). 

Davis (or Davies), (Hertford). 

Doyle, Ann (Ireland). 

Gray, John (Middlesex). 

Halfpenny, Daniel (Middlesex). 

Harris, Selina (Surrey). 

Hughes, Elizabeth (Chester). 

Jones, Martha (Hereford). 

Lacon, Dr. Henry (died abroad). 

Langley, Catherine R. (Middlesex). 

Langley, Charles (Solicitor). 

Ludlow, Jane Maria (Middlesex). 

Madsen, Mathias (London). 

Martin, Prances (Middlesex). 

Mostyn, Robt. Capt. (Ireland). 

Newman, Alex. (Suffolk). 

Pigott, D. P. (died abroad). 

Rowlls, Ruth (or Irwin). 

Smith, Geoirge (Middlesex). 

Stokes, John Allen (Surrey). 

Sweeney, Maria (Chester). 

Symons, Caroline (Devon). 

Tart, William (Dover). 

Taylor, Geo. (Monmouth). 

Varley, Samuel (Worcester). 

Welsh, Edwd. G. (Commercial Traveler). 

Welton. John (Middlesex). 

Williams, Geo. (Middlesex). 

The Next of Kin of the above are doubtless inquired for with refer- 
ence to effects more or less valuable. Such notices are, moreover, ex- 
ceedingly interesting to relatives, as they are the means of affording a 
clue to the fate of some missing one. 

The following notes of curious cases, in which successful claims have 
been made on the Crown, will be encouraging to persons having claims of 
a like kind : — 


In 1802 the following Advertisement appeared :— 

" If the Relations or Next of Kin (if any) of George Frederick Kohler. 
late Brigadier-Gleneral in his Majesty's Artillery, who died in Egypt on 
29th December, 1800, a Widower and Intestate, will apply at the King's 
Proctor's OfiBoe, Doctors' Commons, London, they will hear of something 
to their advantage." 

In 1813 the then Solicitor to the Treasury obtained, as nominee of 
the Crown, a grant of Letters of Administration to the estate and effects 
of George Frederick Kohler, an officer of Artillery, who died in Syria in 
1800, intestate, and whose property up to that time had not beea 

In 1820 Christiane Bauer, of Cronberg, laborer, and Elizabeth his; 
wife, filed a bill, claiming to be entitled to General Kohler's property, as 
his Next of Kin. The bill alleged that the intestate was the only son of 
George Kohler, who was born at Bingen, on the Rhine, and who left thera 
very early in life and became a soldier in the Royal Artillery ; he after- 
wards entered the service of the East India Company, where he died or 
was killed in battle, leaving the intestate his only child. The bill prayed 
for the usiial discovery and accounts. 

The answer to the bill denied all knowledge of the relationship of tha 


plaintiffs to the intestate, and stated that the Crown Solicitor had paid, 
'Over the money to the King's Proctor, on warrant under the Sign Manual. 
Exceptions were taken to the answer, which were allowed. An amended 
■answer was put in, stating that the nominee of the Crown entered into a 
bond to the King's Proctor in a penal sum, which bond recited the death of 
General Kohler intestate and without issue or any known relation, where- 
by His Majesty, in right of his Koyal prerogative, became entitled to the 
personal estate and effects aforesaid. It was stated that the balance 
(£7,843, 8s. 4d.) had been, in 1814, paid to the King's Proctor. 

In 1830 the suit was revived. In 1831 a decree was made directing 
inquiry as to who were the N'ext of Kin thus : — 

" Pursuant to a Decree of His Majesty's Court of Exchequer, the Next 
■of Kin of George Frederick Kohler, otherwise Keylor, late a Brigadier- 
General in His Majesty's Eegiment of Artillery service, who died at Jaffa, 
in Egypt, in December, 1800, intestate, who were living at the time of his 
■decease, and the personal representatives of such of them as are since dead." 

Between 1831 and 1851 various proceedings were taken. On 36 

• February, 1859 (twenty-eight years after the injury was directed), the 

Master made his Eeport, by which he found that Jacob Kohler, Johann 

Michael Kohler, and Ge^trandt Schmidt formerly Kohler), were the 

paternal uncles and aunt, and sole Next of Kin of the intestate living at 

the time of his death,, and that Philip Kohler, H s Kohler, and Johann 

M. Schmidt, were respectively their personal representatives. Exceptions 
"were taken to this Report, but it was confirmed by the Vice-Ohancellor 
Kindersley on 9 June, 1859. A supplemental bill was filed, accounts were 
directed, and an Order made for paying what should be found due with 
interest at four per cent. In 1860 the Chief Clerk certified that the sum 
of £7,843 8s. 4d. was due for principal, and £14,439 13s. 6d. for interest, 
and an Order was made to pay into Court the sums thus found due. It is 
•almost needless to say the Crown appealed from this decision. 

In July, 1861, the case came on in the House of Lords, when their 
Xiordships affirmed the Vice-Chancellor's decision. 

The foregoing case is especially noteworthy as showing that Next of 
Kin may successfully claim funds from the Crown, although over sixty 
years may have elapsed between the date of the intestate's death and the 
recovery of the money. It would be difficult to find a more encouraging 
•case for claimants. 


This case is remarkable, not for the largeness of the sum at stake, but 
from the fact that the Crown had to pay interest for a period of thirty 
years, the Vice-Chancellor being of opinion that the Crown " had no right 
to have money, as it were, wrapped up in a napkin." The facts were these : 
— In 1836 Thomas Dewell died intestate. A.t the time of his death no 
Next of Kin were forthcoming, and the Crown Solicitor took out Letters 
of Administration. The following Advertisement was issued : — 

"If the Relations or Next of Kin of Thomas Dewell, formerly of 
Oowes, Isle of "Wight, and late of Elhott place, near Gosport, in the County 
of Southampton, Gtentleman, a Lieutenant in Her Majesty's Army, 

deceased, will apply to , they may hear of something to their 


No Next of Kin appeared. The clear amount that came to the Crown 


was £2,064 7s. Id., -which, under the then existing law, the Crown Solic- 
itor paid over in 1838 to the King's Proctor, for the King's use. In 1857 a 
suit was instituted, and further Advertisements for Next of Kin were issued. 
In 1858 certain persons were proven to be Next of Kin, and the Crown 
were willing to pay the balance aforesaid ; the only question was, whether 
interest could be claimed from the time when there was a clear balance in 
the hands of the administrator, — that is, in 1827. After a learned argu- 
ment, the Vice-Chancellor said : — "In this case the Sovereign has, on his 
own account, or on behalf of the public, had the use of the property, and 
the Sovereign or the public is responsible, and therefore it appears to me 
there is a liability to pay interest." His Honor then made an Order for 
repayment by the Crown of the sum of £2,064 7s. Id., with interest from 
the year 1837 to 1858,— the date of the Order. 

Another remarkable " Crown windfall " case is that of Mrs. Helen 
Blake, who died in 1876, at Kensington, intestate, leaving personalty of 
the value of £130,000, and without any known relatives. The usual notice 
■was issued, thus : — 

"Blake. — Heir-at-Law. — Next of Kin. — The Heir-at-Law and the 
Next of Kin of Mrs. Helen Blake, late of No. 4, Earl's Terrace, Kensington, 
Widow, deceased, are requested to apply to the Solicitor of the Treasury." 

No one reading this very bald notice would guess that £140,000 only 
.awaited proper proofs of identity prior to being handed over to the lucky 
Next of Kin. The amount in dispute is not stated in the Advertisement, 
nor are the Next of Kin informed, in the usual phraseology of such notices, 
that " something to their advantage " awaits them. Unless Next of Kin 
Advertisements state concisely what the Next of Kin are wanted for, they 
have rather a discouraging tendency than otherwise, for instances are not 
unknown where a creditor of a deceased person has advertised for Next of 
Kin in order to get his account settled. However, in this case it would 
seem that claims have been lodged, as an action is pending in the Chancery 

Many people believe it impossible to recover property from the 
Crown, but there is little difficulty if the claimant's title is a clear one. 
The following is the record of a case in which no less a sum than £57,000 
in the Three per Cents was thus recovered : — 

In 1842, Mr. John Turner, of Middlesex, died intestate, and very 
"wealthy. His effects were taken charge of by the Treasury Solicitor, who 
issued the following notice : — ^ 

"Next of Kik. — If the relations or Next of Kin of John Turner lato 
ot Huntley Street, in the parish of St. Bancras, in the County of Middle- 
sex, Esq., who died on or about the 30th day of January, 1843, will apply 
to they may hear of something to their advantage." 

The Next of Kin did eventually find it very much to their advantage, 
but several years elapsed before the Advertisement was brought under 
their notice. Meanwhile the Solicitor to the Treasury had taken out 
Letters of Administration and sold the sum of £57,000 Three per Cents 
standing in the name of the intestate, and paid the proceeds into the 
Treasury. Next of Kin eventually appeared, and two Chancery suits were 

In 1849, the Next of Kin having established their claims, the cause 
came on for further directions, and a question was raised whether the 
Solicitor to the Treasuiy must pay interest on the £57,000 Three per 
Cents from the time of its transfer to the Treasury. 


Counsel for the Next of Kin contended that the nominee of the 
Cro'^Tn was in the same position as any other administrator, and must re- 
place the fund with interest at four per cent. 

Counsel for the Crown submitted that the case was a peculiar one ; 
that by the neglect of the Next of Kin. to come forward, and the obscurity 
and difficulty which the intestate himself had created by using a Christian 
name different from that by which he had, as the jury had found, been • 
baptized, the administrator was perfectly justified in the course which he 
had taken, and as he had made no interest by the fund, ought not to pay 
any. The case was hke that of Unclaimed Dividends which were taken 
by the Crown, and upon which no interest was paid, the Crown retaining: 
the interest or using the money as compensation for taking care of it, as 
was done, in fact, by bankers. The plaintiffs were not entitled, either in 
respect of contract or otherwise, to interest. 

The Vice-Chancellor, however, was of opinion that as the Crown's 
nominee had, without any necessity arising in the course of the adminis- 
tration of the estate, sold the Stock ; and then without any judicial deci- 
sion,authority, or investigation, paid it over to those whom he considered 
entitled, the persons really entitled to the fund ought not to suffer by the 
proceeding. The Solicitor to the Treasury was therefore ordered to replace 
the sum produced by the sale, with interest at four per cent. 

It would be difficult to find a more encouraging decision than the 
foregoing for persons having claims on the Crown arising out of Intestates' 
estates. • 

The Upcroft Estate Case (personalty valued at £160,000) excited a 
good deal of interest. The facts are these : — In November, 1861, the fol- 
lowing notice appeared in the Times: — 

" Sudden Death. — The Deputy-Coroner for West Middlesex held an 
inquest on Wednesday night .... touching the sudden death of a 
gentleman of fortune named John Montague Upcroft, sixty years of age, 
residing at 301, Marylebone-road. Mr. Norton, the deceased gentleman's 
medical adviser, deposed that he was found dead in his bedroom on Satur- 
day morning last. The cause of death was phthisis and polypus of the 
heart, and disease of the lungs. The deceased was a man of large property, 
being worth at least £130,000, and a large amount of money was found 
in the house. As no relatives had come forward to claim it, the witness 
had deemed it his duty to employ a solicitor to seal up and take charge of 
the deceased's property, and to take such other proceedings as the law 
directed. In conformity with the medical evidence, a verdict of ' Death 
from natural causes ' w^as returned." 

In December, 1861, the Next of Kin were advertised for apparently 
without success, as in the session of 1877, Mr. Colman, M. P., gave the 
following notice : — 

"To call attention to the case of John Montague Upcroft, an illegiti- 
mate, who died on the 23rd November, 1861, intestate ; and to move for a 
Keturn of any allowance made out of the estate, and of any other applica- 
tion for allowance which has been made and not acceded to by the Treas- 

This notice, however, dropped out of the Order Book, and it may be 
useful to cite precedents for the information asked for by Mr. Colman. In 
1833, Mr. Harvey (then M P. for Colchester) moved for a Return as to 
Intestates' Estates as follows : — 

" Return of the number of cases and of the names of the parties in. 


Tyhich the Crown has administered to the estate and effects of persons who 
have died intestate, leaving no lawful issue, since the year 1824 to 1830, 
both inclusive, specifying (1) the nature and extent of the property so ob- 
tained and now in progress of recovery ; (3) the appropriation thereof ; 
(3) what proceedings have been taken in the Courts of Law or Equity in 
respect thereof; and (4) the costs attending each case, and by and to whom 
paid, so far as relates to the office of the Solicitor of the Treasury." 

The return fills 47 pp., and from it we extract the following ;— Num- 
ber of estates reverting to the Crown during the period between 1824-1830, 
about 150 ; amount received (in round numbers), £210,000 ; appropriated 
£131,000; amount in progress of recovery over £25,000; costs, about 

It may be interesting to add particulars of some of the estates inclu- 
ded in this Keturn, thus : — 

« Intestate's name.— Bolton Mainwaring. Amount obtained £6,061 
2s. In progress of recovery. Nil. Crown's share paid to the King's Proctor, 
jei,503 2s. 3d. ; Grant to Anna Priscilla Warrington, £4,259 12s. 3d. ; 
Costs, £299 7s. 6d. Intestates name. — Samuel Ducket and John Wat- 
son ; Amount obtained — Nil. ; In progress of recovery — £1,000 Bast In- 
dia Stock, and about £6,000 arrears of dividend." This suggestive note is> 
attached to the entry : — " The difficulty of identifying the deceased parties 
has hitherto stopped the progress, and nothing has yet been recovered. 
Intestate's name. — John Turner — (Seaman's wages). Amount obtained 
£51 2s. 4d. ; Debt paid £19 19s. 6d. ; Grant to W. Player £3 lis. 2d. ; 
Costs £28 lis. 8d. Intestate's name. — Charles Sidney — (Share of Deccan 
Prize money). Amount obtained £50 10s. 9d. ; Crown's share £3 Is. Id 
Grant to Mr. Sicard £25 17s. 8d. ; Costs £30 12s. Intestate's name.- 
Eachel Frances Antona Ijee. Amount obtained £24,910 lis. lOd. 
Crown's share £5,770 8s. 2d. ; Grant to Lady Ann Dash wood Trehurst 
£16,346 7d. ; Costs £1,706 148. 6d." 

Many more details might be extracted from this Eeturn, but the above 
are probably enough to prove that very large sums yearly revert to the 
Crown by reason of persons dying without known relatives. 

One of the most recent " Crown windfall" cases is that of the undis- 
posed of residue of the estate of a Mr. George Perton who died at Prest- 
bury, Gloucestershire, in 1881. The personality was valued at £260,000 ; 
but £200,000 (the residue after payment of munificent legacies) was undis- 
posed of by the testator's will. An inquiry as to the legitimacy of the testa- 
tor was held before Mr. Dowdeswell, Q. C. ; the testator was proved to be 
illegitimate, and the £200,000 went to the Crown. 

Before, leaving this subject we would draw attention to the Treasury 
Solicitor Act of 1876, under which these estates are dealt with. The title 
of the Act is "to incorporate the Sohcitor for the affairs of Her Majesty's 
Treasury, and make further provision respecting the grant of the adminis- 
tration of the estate of deceased persons for the use of Her Majesty." The 
principal sections are as follows : — 

Section 2 — Enables her Majesty, by Royal Warrant, to nominate the 
Treasury Solicitor to act on behalf of her Majesty in cases where estates 
have reverted to the Crown by persons dyiag intestate or otherwise. 

Section 4 — Relates to the disposal of money and property received 
from administration or forfeiture .... of Unclaimed Grants, and em- 
powers the Treasury to make Rules with reference thereto, thus — (1) Such 
money and all money arising from securities ... is to be carried to an 


account to be called " The Crown's Nominee Account " (3) All money- 
standing to the credit of the said account not required for purposes thereof! 
is to be paid into the account of Her Majesty's Exchequer. (3) Money, 
securities, or property granted by Her Majesty to any person, and not. 
claimed within the period fixed by the rules aforesaid, the Treasury may 
direct to be sold, and the proceeds carried to the Crown's Nominee Ac- 

Then follows this important proviso : If any person satisfies the 
Treasury of his right under the said grant to the whole or any part of 
such unclaimed money, securities, or property, the Treasury may direct 
the sum paid to the Crown's Nominee Accouiit in respect of the same or- 
of the part to which such person shows himself to be entitled, to be paid 
to such person Out of the Consolidated Pund, or the growing produce- 

It will thus be seen that personal estate can be recovered froni the 
Crown at any time on proper proofs of title being adduced. 

The section proceeds : The accounts of the receipts and expenditure- 
on the Crown's Nominee Account shall be deemed public accounts ; and. 
such abstract thereof as may be directed by Rules under this Act shall 
be annually laid before Parliament. 

Although the accounts are to be deemed " public accounts," they are 
issued in such a form as to be of no value whatever to the public. No par- 
ticulars are 'given as to the number of estates dealt with ; the names and 
addresses of the intestates : the amount of each estate ; the number of cases 
in which claimants have appeared ; the amount of the funds handed over 
to the Next of Kin, and so-forth. All these particulars could be given 
with very little trouble, and the Parliamentary Paper would then indeed be 
a valuable one to the public. 

Since the passing of the Treasury Solicitor Act the receipts have been 
as follows: 1877, £137,876 19s. lid. ; 1878, £139,769 9s. 3d. ; 1W7.% 
£140,879 3s. 5d. ; 1880, £56,448 13s. lid. 

After payment of the Crown's share, grants to persons having claims- 
on the bounty of the Crown, costs, etc., the balance in hand in 1881 was 
£177,374 5s. lOd. 

Attention has been called in the House of Commons to the meagTC 
nature of the information afforded by the " Crown's Nominee Ac- 
count," and Sir Herbert Maxwell, last session, gave the following notice : 

" Sir Hbrbekt Maxwell — Intestates' Estates reverting to the Crown 
— Return showing the total amount received on behalf of the Crown since 
the passing of the Treasury Solicitor Act, 1876, with the names and 
addresses of the Intestates ; also the names and addresses of the Intestates 
whose estates are in course of administration, with the amount of each 

This notice, unfortunately, dropped out of the Order Book, but I hope 
to see it renewed. There are many precedents showing the great value of 
publicity in similar cases. 

The evidence of the late Queen's Proctor before the legal Depart- 
ments Commission, as to how these estates are ordinarily dealt with, is 
very interesting. The following is the essence of it, extracted from a 
letter in the Daily News on " Windfalls for Royalty." The Queen's Proc- 
tor said : 

" I take out letters of administration, and get in all the money for the 
Government in connection with the estates and Intestate bastards and 


iona vacantia. ... I recommend the Lords of the Treasury as to the 
disposition of the balance of the effects. . . . The Solicitor of the 
Treasury is appointed administrator. ... I am known all over the worlds 
and I correspond with solicitors and the people interested. ... I ascertain 
what the effects are eiftier at the Bank of England or with various public 
bodies. . . . Mr. Stephenson gets in the effects. . . . Sometimes there are 
large and heavy pedigree cases. ... In a heavy case a short time ago, I 
fancied it was rather a fraudulent case on the part of the party who set 
up the claim. I got the facts together and took Counsel's opinion. . . . 
I went on and won the case, and a large sum was recovered. ... I have 
a lot of administrations going in shortly and among them is one estate 
worth £35,000. Occasionally I have much heavier amounts even than that, 
. . . All these estates are vested in the Crown ; they belong to Her 
Majesty in right of Her Eoyal prerogative. . . . When bastards die there 
are always plenty of people only too ready to seize hold of their 
property and get wills made. ... In one case there was a commission to 
America. ... It was an estate worth £70,000, 1 think. ... In ordinary 
cases the procedure is this : I receive a letter that A. B. is dead ; that 
he had such and such property ; that he was a bastard, or has left none 
but illegitimate relations. I then ascertain the facts, and find out who the 
.Ifext of Kin are, or the persons to whom the Crown should make grants, 
and I recommend accordingly. I take out from forty to fifty administra- 
tions in a year. Some are large amounts — £130,000 and sums of that 
sort." — Preston's Unclaimed Momy. 



THERE are not a few estates in England the presumptive owners whereof, 
though having apparently a,good title thereto, may be ousted by the 
rightful Heir — supposed long since to have departed this life — ^re-appearing 
on the scene. There are likewise people who, possessing every just right to 
a very desirable estate, are still liable to litigation and worry by reason of 
impostors setting up claims having SLprima facie appearance' of genuineness. 

The catalogue of spurious claimants is a long one ; such claims have 
been set up not only in our own day and in our own country, but also in 
the olden time both here and abroad. Claimants have rarely any diffi- 
culty in finding people ready to believe, not only in the genuineness of 
their claims, but also (and this is the strangest part' of the business), to 
find the money to assist in substantiating them. The Magna Charta 
Association is a notable case in point, one of the principal objects of that 
Association being " to secure the release and establish the rights of Sir 
Roger Tichborne," — not a very lively outlook for the trustees of the Tich- 
borne estates, who have already had to obtain a Special Act of Parliament 
in order to raise funds for opposing the claim of Arthur Orton, the cost of 
such opposition being nearly £100,000. 

It is easy for really just claims to arise ; this is clearly shown by the 
following paragraph, which apppeared in a .leading provincial newspaper 
some years ago: 

" An Estate Withoitt an Ownbk. — At a meeting of the Historic 
Society of Lancashire and Cheshire, held in the Grand Jury Room of St. 
George's Hall, Liverpool, on Thursday night, Mr. George Meyer, who pre- 
sided, in referring to an interesting seal belonging to the family of Moels, 
stated that the last owner of the property at Moels had a son of very 
disi?olute character, who, getting into debt, collected the rents of the estate, 
to meet his extravagances. His father, vowing that he would be revenged 
on his son, set out to find him ; but whether he did so is not known, iS to 
this day neither father nor son have been heard of, and the whole of the 
estate is now in the hands of the tenants, and would be claimable should 
an Heir be found." 

We often hear of searches for missing Heirs-at-Law, but it is rarely 
indeed that we find recorded an instance afEording such ample material 
for the novelist as the foregoing. An aggrieved father goes in search of 
his erring son, and neither father nor son are heard of again — that is suffi- 
ciently romantic, in all conscience ! 

Lovers of the curious may like to consult a work entitled " Celebrated 
Claimants." Many and marvelous are the claims there recorded, including 
the history of a spurious claim to be no less a personge than the Sultan 
of Turkey. A pretender to the throne of England died only recently. 



The following is a curious case of an abortive claim to large estates 
in the North of England: 

Many years ago a Mr. William Swan was found dead in his bed, at an 
obscure lodging in London. He was the only surviving male Heir of the 
late Mr. Alderman Swan, Mayor of Hull, who left estates of the value of 
£30,000 per annum, or thereabouts, and which the unfortunate Heir had 
been trying (in vain) for over twenty years to recover. The history of the 
Heir is no less remarkable than that of his father, who, when nine years 
of age (to disinherit him), was abducted from the house of his father 
(Richard Swan, Esq., of Benwell Hall, near Newcastle), and put on board 
the New Britannia brig ; was wrecked on the rocks of Scilly with Sir 
Oloudesley Shovel's fleet, and was afterward taken prisoner by an Algerine 
vessel, and sold for a slave ; but, after four years imprisonment, he was 
set at liberty by the redeeming Friars. After this he was again ship- 
wrecked, was carried and sold for a slave to a planter in South Carolina, 
where he sufEered almost every human woe. He returned to his native 
home in 1726, after an absence of about twenty years, and was identified 
by one Mrs. Grofton, of Newcastle, his nurse, and Thomas Chance, who 
had been his father's footman. He directly laid claim to the estates of 
Alderman Swan, but having neither money, nor friends living, tof assist 
him, all his efEorts proved abortive. After this, he settled at an obscure 
village. North Dalton, near Hull, where he married one Jane Cole, by 
whom he had one son, the above unfortunate William Swan. He after- 
wards died of a broken heart at the above village, 1735. 

After reading the foregoing romantic story, it is easy to believe in the 
truth of the old song which says — 

'Tis a very good world that we live in, 

To lend, or to, spend, or to give in; 

But to beg, or to borrow, or get a man's own, 

'Tis the very worst world, Sirs, that ever was known. 

Prom the ' great uncertainty of human affairs, it not unf requently 
happens that estates belonging to one family change owners several times 
in a generation. In the course of these transitions, the rightful Heir is 
occasionally lost sight of, and when he does revisit his native place, he 
finds it almost impossible to substantiate his heirship. 

Advertisements for claimants are passed over by most people as hav- 
ing only a transitory value, but many of such notices are, nevertheless, 
the means of affording not only a clue to a very desirable estate, but also 
a clue to the whereabouts of some long-lost relative, who has possibly re- ' 
turned from abroad after many years' absence the happy possessor of an 
ample fortune, which he is anxious his Next of Kin should share, could 
he only find them. 

The following is an advertisement for the descendants of a person 
•who died 120 years prior to the issue of this notice : — 

" WiLLiiM Chapman, deceased. — William Chapman, late of New 
Shoreham, in the County of Sussex, Mariner, who departed this life about 
the year 1732, and formerly of Deptford, in the County of Kent, had by 
his wife four sons and three daughters ; the names of the sons were Will- 
iam, John, Joseph, and Clement, and the names of the daughters, Eliza- 
beth, Margaret, and Annie. Any persons who can trace their descent 
(however remote) from either of the said Chapmans, may hear of some- 
thing greatly to their advantage, upon application to 

The following is a very curious Claimant Advertisement : — 


"To SoLiciTOES AND OTHERS. — Twenty-eight years ago. — ^Wanted, 
the claims of Young Tom Smith, the shoemaker's son, of London Wall, 
to be TAKEN UP. Supposed to be dead. — T. Smith." 

Such notices as the foregoing ai-e not uncommon, and they show 
pretty clearly that claimant cases are constantly cropping up. 

What is known as the "Great Jennens Case" has given rise to many 

Claimants. The facts are remarkable, and may be shortly stated thus : — 

The late William Jennins, of Acton-place, Suffolk, and of Grosvenor- 

square, Esq., by whom the estates were left, attained the great age of 97, 

and died in the year 1798. 

King William the Third, was godfather to WilHam Jennens, and 
amongst other valuable presents at his baptism a • silver ewer from that 
Sovereign was conspicuous. William Jennins was at one time page to 
George the First, and during the long period of his life remained a bach- 
olor, more given to penuriousness than hospitality, and his accumulations 
multiplied even beyond the power of computation. He received £3,000 a 
year from what was known as the Exchequer Tontine. He had property 
in almost every fund, and the following were some of the chief items : — 

South Sea Stock £100,000 

Indian Stock 23,800 

Consols, Three per Cents 60,000 

Bank Stock 35,000 

Pour and Five per Cent, ditto 54,000 

Reduced Annuities 50,000 

Long ditto , 2,000 per ann. 

Cash at five different bankers 107,000 

Accumulated interest on Stocks, Funds, etc., about 150,000 

On Mortgage, about 200,000 

Landed estate, say 8,000 per ann. 

London Assurance (dividend due) 3, 400 

New River Concern (dividend due) 5, 000 

His wealth was immense. The dividends on most of his Stocks had 
not been received since 1788, nor the interest on his mortgages for years. 
In his iron chest, the key of which was found hidden in a mortgage deed, 
there were bank notes of the year 1788 to the amount of £19,000, and 
several thousand new guineas. About £30,000 in money and bank notes 
were found at his town and country houses, and also a key to the chest 
containing his mother's plate and valuables deposited with Messrs. Childs, 
the bankers. He is reported to have always kept £50,000 in his bankers* 
hands for any sudden emergency ; he had not drawn a draft on the bank 
for the last fourteen years of his life. It was only a short time before his 
death that he employed a steward. He was very regular and exact in his 
accounts ; he even noticed his household bills when they exceeded their 
usual weekly amount. His expenses were supposed to be about £3,000 
per annum only, although his property at his death was of the estimated 
value of two millions sterling. A Will -was found in his coat-pocket, 
sealed but not signed. This was owing — so runs the tale — to his having 
left his, spectacles at home when he went to his solicitor for the purpose of 
executing the Will. It is stated that by this Will the whole of his im- 
mense wealth was intended to be wholly alienated from the channels into 
which it. fell. 

Truly, indeed, do " great events from little causes spring " In this 
case, ^the disposition of no less than two millions worth of property ap- 
pears to have been diverted, owing to the intending testator having for- 
gotten his spectacles. The Heir-at-Law of Mr. William Jennens was 


George Augustus William Curzon, infant son of the Honorable Asshleton 
Curzon, M. P., to -whom all the real estate reyerted. The personalty 
devolved to his cousins. 

From the date of William Je'nnens's death, in 1798, to the present 
time, claimants have periodically made claim to these estates. 

One of the latest claimants was a person known as " Martin the Sex- 
ton." His claim was heard by Vice-Chancellor Bacon, and dismissed. 
The Court of Appeal upheld the Vice- Chancellor. 

The case of a still later set of claimants to these vast estates came 
before the late Vice-Chancellor Malins, and was dismissed. 

Intending claimants would do well to ponder the learned Vice- 
Chancellor's judgment. His lordship said : " If such a claim could be 
allowed after a period of eighty-two years, no one would be safe in the 
possession of his property. He could see no ground whatever for alleging 
concealed fraud. 

The Sir Andrew Chadwick Estate case has also given rise to numer- 
ous claimants. Sir Andrew died at Westminster in 1768, very wealthy. 
One remarkable fact in connection with this case is the getting up recently 
at Eochdale of an " Association of Claimants," 400 in number, claiming 
descent from Sir Andrew — a.11 very anxious to obtain a share of his prop- 
erty, said to be now worth £7,000,000. 

The case ChadwicJe v. GhfidioicTc and Others, in which the plaintiff 
claims to be the Heir-at-Law 'of Sir Andrew, was lately before the Queen's 
Bench Division on a question of discovery. The trial of the cause has 
not yet been decided. 

A few years since there appeared in the New Tork World a very inter- 
esting article headed Phantom JEstates, giving "the chances of the Jennens's 
and others as interpreted by themselves." It shows that Americans in 
this, as in many other matters, like big figures : —

IN 1636, Koelof Jansen, who had been Assistant Superintendent of 
Farms at Kennselaerwick, obtained from the Dutch Director-General 
and Governor, Wouter Van Twiller, a grant of thirty-one morgend, or 
sixty-two acres, of land on Manhattan Island, a little to the north of Tort 
Amsterdam. On the city map to-day, the grant would cover a sec- 
tion beginning south of Warren Street, ^extending on Broadway to 
Duane, and thence northwesterly a mile and a half, to Christopher Street, 
forming an unequal triangle, with its base on North River. Soon after 
the grant, Jansen (or Jans) died, leaving a wife and four children. In 
1638, the widow, Anetje Jans, married Dominie Everardus Bogardus, and 
her farm became the " Dominie's Bouwerie." Possibly, if Van Twiller could 
have foreseen this transfer, he would not have made the grant to Jans. 
The new Governor and the new dominie were fellow passengers to Man- 
hattan in 1633, in the ship " Southberg," but after their arrival they did not 
harmonize. The Governor resented the dominie's interference in public 
affairs. Bogardus, in his pulpit, called Van Twiller " a child of Satan," 
which so incensed him that he never again darkened the dominie's door. 
In 1647, Bogardus sailed for home with William Kieft, who had been 
Governor since 1638, and now was superseded by Peter Sfcuyvesant. The 
ship was wrecked on the coast of Wales, and Bogardus, Kieft, and seventy- 
eight other passengers were lost. In 1664, by the English occupation, 
New Amsterdam became New York, and Colonel Richard NicoUs was Gov- 
ernor. The Jans grant had been confirmed to his heirs soon after the 
death of Bogardus; but in 16?1 the heirs sold the property to Colonel 
Francis Lovelace, who succeeded NicoUs as Governor in 1668. At this 
sale one of the heirs failed to be present, but Lovelace considered his title 
good enough, and he bought the Bouwerie for his private property, not 
for the Crown. On July 39, 1673, while Lovelace was away on a pleasure 
tour, five Dutch ships sailed up the bay, anchored ofE the Battery, and can- 
nonaded the city. Captain Oolve, with six hundred men, landed, and the 
fort soon surrendered. When Lovelace returned, he was permitted to sail 
for England, where he was severely reprimanded for cowardice and 
treachery. The peace between England and the States-General, 1674, 
restored New York, and one of the first acts of the 'new Governor, Sir 
Edmund Andros, was to confiscate the estate of Ldvelace to the Duke of 
York. The Jans-Bogardus Bouwerie was thus incorporated into what was 


called the Duke's farm, the King's farm (wnen the Duke of York became 
James II., and also under William and Mary)) and the Queen's farm under 
Anne, in whose reign it was transferred to "Trinity Church. 


Thus the Jans claim was wiped out ; indeed, it hardly ever was heard 
of till about thirty years ago, and Dr. Berrian, in his " Historical Sketch 
of Trinity Church," published in 1847, does not eyen mention it. But 
since then, uneasy heirs, or supposed heirs, the descendants of the 
daughters of Anetje Jans Bogardus, the Kiersteds and all their kin, the 
Van Brughs. and the sisters and the cousins and the aunts, and thousands 
more, are periodically stirred up by lawyers here and there, throughout the 
country, from Maine to Texas. Now and then a suit is suggested, with 
the representation that there are millions in it ; but no scheme of Mul- 
berry Sellers is more Utopian or hopeless. The State Courts repeatedly 
have re-affirmed the valid, subsisting, and absolute title of Trinity Church 
to all its property, and the claims of the Jans heirs are disposed of in 
" Sanford's Chancery Keports," vol. iv., p. 633, as follows : 

" The law on these claims is well settled, and it must be sustained in 
favor of religious corporations as well as private individuals. Indeed, it 
would be monstrous, if, after a possession such as has been proven in this 
case for nearly a century and one-half, open, notorious, and within sight 
of the temple of justice, the successive claimants, save one, being men of 
full age, and the courts open to-them all the time (except for seven years 
of the war of the revolution), the title to lands were tobe litigated success- 
fully upon a claim which has been suspended for five generations. Few ' 
titles in the country would be secure under such an administration of the 
law ; and its adoption would lead to scenes of fraud, corruption, foul in- 
justice, and legal rapine, far worse in their consequences upon the peace, 
good order, and happiness of society than external war or domestic insur- 

As for the story, sometime current, that Trinity corporation was will- 
ing to compromise such claims, it never has offered, and never will offer, 
one dollar for that purpose. 


This prelude explains and disposes of the Anetje Jans claims in con- 
nection with the property of the corporation ; and now properly begins 
the history of Trinity Church, especially in respect of its wealth, how its 
means were acquired, and how they have been and are dispensed, which we 
think will be interesting to the public at large, and especially to those who 
have at any time entertained a hope that they would some time become 
possessed of a large interest in it, as heirs of Anetje Jans. 

Immediately after the Dutch surrender of the colony, the English 
Church service was first celebiated in New York, September 14, 1664, by the 
chaplain of the English forces, the Dutch permitting the use of their church 
after their own morning service ; and for some years the two congregations 
used the same chapel, which was in the fort near the Battery. ' In 1678- 
80, the Kev. Charles Wooley, a graduate of Emanuel College, Cambridge, 
in 1677, was chaplain to the English garrison, and a journal of the time 
says : " We went at noon to hear the English minister, whose services took 


place after the Dutch church was out. There were not above twenty-five 
or thirty people in the church," which was a good congregation, for the en- 
tire population of the city was then only 2,500. In 1696-7, a church was 
built where Trinity now stands, and in 1697, the fifth year of the reign of 
William and Mary, by an act of the Assembly, approved and ratified by 
the Governor of the province, a royal grant was made of " a certain church 
and steeple lately built in the city of New York, together with a piece or par- 
cel of ground adjoining thereunto, being in or near to a street without the 
north gate of the city, commonly called and known by the name of the 
" Broad Way." The name given to the church in the original charter was 
the same it bears to-day. " The Parish of Trinity Church." The war- 
dens and vestrymen appointed under this charter included Col. Caleb 
Heathcote, an ancestor of the late Bishop Delancey, and such names as 
Morris, Clarke, Eead, Burroughs, Wilson, and Ludlow, familiar in this city 
now. The edifice was built by assessments and subscriptions mostly small, 
from £1 to £5 ; Gov. Fletcher gave £35 ; Chidlay Brook, Esq., £30 ; and 
Col. Peter Schuyler subscribed £5, "to be paid in boards." In a subse- 
quent separate subscription to build a steeple, in a total sum of £318, £5 
12s. 3d. was a "contribution from the Jews." In 1704, Sarah Knight, of 
Boston, kept a journal of her visit here, and she says of New York people : 
" They are generally of the Church of England and have a New England 
gentleman for their minister and a very fine church, set out with all cus- 
tomary requisites." This New England gentleman was the Rev. William 
Vesey, for whom Vesey Street was named. He was educated at Harvard, 
and was a dissenting preacher but was appointed rector "provided he should 
be admitted to holy orders," and he went to England and was ordained. 
His first service in Trinity was on March 13, 1698, and he was rector nearly 
fifty years, till his death, on July 11, 1746. At first his salary was £100, 
with £36 allowance for house rent, and afterwards the Easter Communion 
offerings and £34s. from the weekly collections were allowed him. The 
clerk and sexton were paid from fees for christenings, marriages, funerals, 
and bell-ringings. 


In 1705, in the reign of Queen Anne, a grant was made to the corpo- 
ration to Trinity Church, by deed patent, signed by Lord Cornbury, then 
Governor of the province, of " the tract called the Queen's farm, lying on 
the west side of Manhattan Island," extending from what now is vesey 
Street, northwardly along the river to Skinner Road, now Christopher Street. 
This tract included the confiscated Lovelace land, bought from the Jans- 
Bogardus heirs. It was literally a farm then and of no great value — the 
city, with less than 5,500 population, was wholly below Wall Street — and 
in its first year's ownership, the church let the entire farm to George Ryerse, 
for £35. In 1737 the church, originally a small square building, was en- 
larged to 148 in length by 72 feet breadth, with a steeple 175 feet high. 
"It stands," says a historian of the time, "very pleasantly upon the banks 
of Hudson's river, and has a large cemetery on each side, enclosed in the 
front by a painted, paled fence. Before it, a long walk is railed off from 
the Broadvay, the pleasantest street of any in the town." It was a splen- 
did church for its day. The tops of the pillars supporting the galleries were 
decked with the gilt busts of angels winged ; two great glass branches were 
suspended from the ceiling ; on the wall hung the arms of some of the 
principal benefactors, conspicuous among them Gov. Fletcher's. During 


the reigns of William and Mary, Queen Anne, and George I. were be- 
stowed, by the bounty of the Crown, three full sets of Communion plate, 
inscribed with the initials of the donors and the royal arms. All the 
furniture of the altar, desk, and pulpit was of the richest and cost- 
liest kind ; and John Olemm built the organ for £520, the vestry adding 
a gratuity of £40. But with all this show, and with a wealthy 
congregation, the corporation, rich in productive property, was compara- 
tively poor, and for many years its wants were pressing. Among the 
early bequests are £50 from Abraham Depuyster, £500 from Thomas 
Duncan, £100 from Joseph Murray for the poor of the parish, and £50 
from Paul Richards for the same purpose. Prom the year 1709 the 
church conducted and supported a charity school. Prom 1715 it had 
assistant ministera, the first of whom were, catechists to the children, to 
the Indians, and especially to the negro slaves, numbers of whom were 
baptized and became communicants in the same church "with their own- 
ers, who were the wealthiest and most prominent people in the city. For, 
of course, till the Eevolution it was the Established Charch, and for 
sixty years the corporation, the vestry, the pew owners, or patentees, as 
they were called, included members of his Majesty's Council, Mayors, 
Recorders, Aldermen, Attorneys-General, and other city and provincial 
magnates. At the same time the selection of wardens and vestrymen 
extended to all classes and callings, limited only by reference to the fit- 
ness, intelligence, and probity of those who were appointed. 


After the death of William Vesey, the Rev. Henry Barclay, father of 
Thomas Barclay, the first British Consul-General in the United States, 
and grandfather of Henry Barclay, British Consul in this city, was 
appointed rector, and was inducted into office October 33, 1746. An induc- 
tion in those days required considerable red tape. First, letters from the 
vestry to the Lord Bishop of London, and to the Venerable Society for the 
Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts, and next to his Excellency, 
the Hon. George Clinton, Esq., Captain-General and Governor-in-Ohief 
in and over the Province of New York and territories thereon depending, 
in America, and Vice-Admiral of the same, and Vice- Admiral of the red 
squadron of his Majesty's fleet. To all this the Governor, signing himself 
simply G. Clinton, sent letters of admission and institution, and a mandate 
for the induction of " Henry Barclay, Clerk, able to be Rector of the 
Parish Church of Trinity Church, in the City of New York;" and rector 
he was for eighteen years, until he died, October 38, 1764. He gives its 
name to Barclay Street. And here it may be noted that Chambers, Des- 
brosses, Duane, Jay, Laight, Moore, Morris, Murray, some of them opened 
through church property, all were named for wardens and vestrymen 
of Trinity, and the derivation of Rector, Church, and so on, is obvious. 


A few years after the induction of Mr. Barclay, the congregation had 
so increased that, although there were 3,000 sittings in the church, it was 
resolved to build a chapel. This was the beginning of St. George's. The 
church lands were still unproductive, but in July, 1749, the corporation 
bought from Henry Beekman six lots fronting on Nassau and Fair (Beak- 


man) streets. These lots ^cost £645, and their estimated value in 1871 
was 1500,000. Trinity issued bonds for £3,000 to build the chapel. Some 
subscriptions came in. The Archbishop of Canterbury sent £10 ; Sir 
Peter Warren (for whom, and not for General Warren, as some suppose, 
Warren Street was named) contributed £100. Sir Peter built for his town 
residence the house, 1 Broadway, which some authorities insist was built 
by Archibald Kennedy, some tinie Collector of this port, and afterward the 
Scotch Earl of Cassflis ; but Warren built it in 1742, long before Kennedy 
lived in it. St. George's was opened July 1, 1752. It was a neat, stone- 
faced edifice, 92 feet long, 72 feet wide, with a steeple 1 75 feet high, and 
was furnished with " a fine large bell, which cost £88 3s. 2d. sterling." In 
1811 St. George's separated from Trinity, but in 1812 Trinity endowed it 
with twenty-four lots on Greenwich, Barclay, Murray, Warren, Chambers, 
and Reade streets, then annually renting for |3,000 for twenty-one years, 
and $3,200 for a second term of twenty-one years. In 1813 the endow- 
ments were increased by eight lots on EeaHe, Murray, and Chambers 
streets, then renting for $1,020 annually, and Trinity bought from Cor- 
nelius J. Bogert, for $3,125, a lot to enlarge St. George's church-yard, 
besides paying $5,104 for an iron railing and some repairs in the church. 
In 1814 the church was burned, and Trinity rebuilt it at a cost of $31,000, 
besides buying, for $14,000, the adjacent estate of Thomas Burling. The 
gifts of Trinity to St. George's in money and lots, at their then value, 
amounted to nearly a quarter of a million. In 1752 Trinity corporation' 
gave to King's (Columbia) College the tract of land between Murray and 
Barclay streets, and extending from Church Street to the river. More 
than thirty years ago, this ground was very safely estimated to be worth 
"perhaps $400,000." 


The Rev. Samuel Auchmuty, born in Boston, educated at Harvard 
College, and ordained in London, who had been assistant to Mr. Barclay 
and catechist to the blacks, succeeded to the rectorship of Trinity, Septem- 
ber 1, 1764. The estate of the corporation had become more productive, 
but its income was still comparatively limited. Yet, in 1763, it was 
resolved to set apart the lots on Broadway and Partition (Fulton) Street 
for another chapel, and to borrow £15,750 to build St. Paul's. This beauti- 
ful building, the only church in the city now standing on its original site, and 
presenting substantially the same unchanged appearance it did more than 
a century ago, was opened for service October 30,1766, and Dr. Auchmuty 
preached the dedication sermon, and the Governor, Sir Henry Moore, by 
permission of the vestry, introduced a band of music. Trinity, now famous 
for its choral service, paid much attention to its music long ago. The 
New York Gazette, January 15, 1761, notes that " on Sunday last, at Trin- 
ity Church, was performed an Anthem on the death of his late sacred 
Majesty" (George II., who died October 25, 1760, and the news was lojig in 
coming), composed by Mr Tuckey, organ part by Mr. Harrison, solo part 
by Mr. Tuckey, and chorus by the boys of the Charity School." In 1762 
Trinity sold its old organ, gave 700 guineas for a new one, and advanced 
the salary of the organist to £18 per quarter. The Gazette of September 
23, 1762, announced that " Mr William Tuckey has obligated himself to 
teach a sufficient number of persons to perform the Te Deum, and he de- 
sires all persons, from lads of 10 years old, to be speedy in their applica- 


tion, and he will receive all qualified until there are fifty voices in the 
chorus." This was the beginning of boy choirs and choral service in the 
city. It is pleasant to note, too, in the Gazette, February 10, 1772, that a 
considerable sum of money was collected and charity sermons preached 
on the previous Sunday at Trinity, St. George's, and St. Paul's for the re- 
lief of the prisoners in the " Goal" of the city, " they being in want, not 
only of firing, but even of the common necessaries of life." 


In 1774 New York was a prosperous place of some 23,000 population. 
In that year John Adams on his way to the Congress in Philadelphia, 
stopped here, and the simple-minded Bostouian, never before beyond the 
limits of New England, was much impressed, as his diary records, by 
" the opulence and splendor of the city." But troubulous times soon 
came, and first to the Church of England clergymen, who were loyalists. 
On April 14, 1776, Washington arrived in the city and took command of 
the American army, which, with his re-enforcements, numbered 10,335 
men. Di:. Auchmuty was in New Jersey, and his assistant, the Rev. 
Charles Inglis, was notified that Washington would be at Trinity on Sun- 
day, and "would be glad if the prayers for the King and royal family were 
omitted," but Inglis paid no regard to it. Not long after, while he was 
officiating, a conipany of 150 men entered the church, drums beating, fifes 
playing, and with loaded guns and fixed bayonets. The congregation was 
terrified, and several women fainted. It was feared that when Mr. Inglis 
read the collects for the King and royal family he would be fired at, but he 
went on with the service as usual and was undisturbed. By the unani- 
mous request of the members of the church he consented to preach on 
May 17, appointed by Congress as a day of fasting and prayer, but he 
made peace and repentance his subject and disclaimed having anything ta 
do with " politics." At length it was thought expedient, by such of the 
vestry as remained in town, to shut up the churches. On September 15, 
the King's troops returned. Six days afterward a fire destroyed about one- 
fourth of the city, including Trinity Church, its rectory, its two charity 
schoolhouses, the whole costing £23,300, besides the loss to the corpora- 
tion of £536 annual rent of 346 lots, on which the tenant's buildings were 
burnt. Poor Dr. Auchmuty forced his way back on foot and at night, 
through the lines, and raked the rubbish of the ruins, but found nothing 
valuable, except the church plate and his own. The registers of bap- 
tisms, marriages, and burials from the foundation of the parish were 
destroyed, and much family history was thus lost. Dr. Auchmuty 
preached his last sermon in St. Paul's, and two days afterward fell sick 
and died March 4, 1777. He was buried in the chancel of St. Paul's, and 
was succeeded as rector of Trinity parish March 30, by the Rev. Charles:. 
Inglis, who resigned November 1, 1783, just before the evacuation of the 
city by the British troops, and afterward became Bishop of Nova Scotia. 
He was a loyalist to the last, and one of the last loyalists in Trinity parish. 


The Legislature, April 17, 1784, passed "An act for making such 
alterations in the charter of the corporation of Trinity Church, so as to 
make it more conformable to the Constitution of the State." Robert R^ 


Livingston and James Duane were appointed wardens, and the vestry 
included Francis Lewis, one of the signers of the Declaration of Inde- 
pendence, Eichard Morris, WiUiani Duer, Eobert Troup, John Stevens, 
Anthony Lispenard, John Rutherford, and other historic names; and, 
April 23, "agreeable. to the desire of the Whig Episcopalians," the Ev . 
Samuel Provoost was inducted rector. He was one of the nine in the 
first class graduated, in 1759, from King's (Columbia) College, which th n 
was a frame building in Trinity church-yard. He was consecrated Bishop 
of New York in 1787, and in 1789 was chosen chaplain to the United 
States Senate. On the day of "Washington's inauguration he preached 
before the President and all the dignitaries in St. Paul's Chapel. The 
•secoad Trinity Church building was erected on the site of the former one 
in 1788. Long afterward the inscribed tablet on the corner-stone was 
discovered in the church-yard, at some distance from the building, broken 
in two pieces, and in 1877 was set in thv. wall of the monument room of 
the church. Bishop Provoost was rector till he resigned December 23, 
1800, and on that day the Eev. Benjamin Moore succeeded him. He was 
consecrated Bishop of New York in 1801, but continued rector of Trinity 
till he died, February 27, 1816. In 1803-7 St. John's Chapel was built on 
the east side of Hudson Square, then a wild and marshy spot, with great 
ponds in the neighborhood — the resort of sportsmen in the summer and 
skaters in the winter. The chapel, which has undergone alteration and 
enlargement three times, originally cost nearly $173,000, and the organ, 
ordered just before the war of 1813 at an expense of $6,000, was captured 
by a British cruiser, and it cost $2,000 more to redeem it. John Henry 
Hobart who was graduated at Princeton, and who had been assistant 
minister since 1801, and assistant Bishop since May 29, 1811, was inducted 
March 11, 1816, and continued rector till his death September 12, 1880. 
His remains rest in the chancel. The Eev. William Berrian was recter 
from October 11, 1830, to his death, November 1, 1863. The present 
xector, the Eev. Morgan Dix, D. D., was inducted November 11, 1863. 
Thus, in a period of 183 years, there have been but nine rectors of 


In 1839 Trinity Church was pulled down, and the present splendid 
structure was begun by the architect, Mr. Eichard Upjohn. It was com- 
pleted in seven years, at a cost, all told, including clock, chimes and or- 
gan, of $358,639.94 — probably less than one-half the sum that would be 
required to build such a church now. It was consecrated on Ascension 
Day, May 21, 1846, by Bishop McCoskry of Michigan, and the procession, 
which included more than 150 Doctors of Divinity in surplices, started 
from Bunkers, which was then (it sounds queerly enough now), a fashion- 
able hotel at 39 Broadway. Among the many old citizens present was 
John P. Groshon, who attended the opening of St. Paul's in 1766, and, 
•stranger still, in the audience was Mrs. Ann Livingston, who was at the 
consecration of the second edifice, and was baptized in the first. The 
reredos, erected in 1877 by Mr. John Jacob Astor and his brother, Will- 
iam, as a memorial to their father, cost them about $50,000, and at the 
same time the corporation expended some $40,000 in re-decorating the 
chancel, and building new robing rooms in the rear. Trinity Chapel, in 
"Twenty-Fifjih Street, built in 1851-56, cost $230,000. St. Ohrysostam'r 
'Chapel, in Thirty-Ninth Street, built in 1869, cost for land $38,000 and 


buildings 160,000. St. Augustine's, in Houston Street, consecrated Novem- 
ber 30, 1877, cost $360,000'; and to build this fine church the corporation 
borrowed $200,000 — its only debt to-day. St. Cornelius, on Governor's 
Island, which Triiiity has supported since 1868, and supplied with a cler- 
gyman, who also acts as post chaplain, is included in the chapels of the 

trinity's gifts. /^ 

In the early history of the parish it was itself in need of assistance, 
but almost as soon as its property became productive it began to give it 
away. Since 1745 its gifts to other churches, in money, lots, communion 
plate, fonts, pulpits, carpets, bells, and everything that can enter into the 
construction and decoration of churches, are innumerable. At one time 
it gave £300 towards ground for a negro cemetery. In 1786 it granted 
three lots in Robinson Street (now Park place) for the use of the senior 
pastors of the Presbyterian congregations in the city. Besides the grants 
a,lready noted, to Columbia College and St. George's Church, it granted in 
1795-98 to St. Mark's, built on land given by the Stuyvesants, besides 
some $20,000 in money, lots estimated thirty years ago to be worth $131,- 
OOO ; to Grace Church, in 1804-11, $130,000 ; Christ Church, 175,000 ; 
St. Thomas's, $33,300 ; St. Luke's, $55,800 ; All Saints', $31,500 ; Ascen- 
«ion, $15,500 ; St. Philip's, $18,000 ; and to churches, colleges, and what 
not, all over the State and elsewhere, loans, gifts and grants, which, in 
1847, were estimated at $3,000,000. The corporation was then cumbered 
with a debt of $440,000, and as most of its lots had been leased out at an 
"early period on mere nominal rents, the annual revenue from ground 
rents, pew rents, and all other sources had never in any one year up to 
that time reached $58,000. The building of Trinity Cliapel carried the 
debt of the corporation up to $668,000. In 1857 the deficits in revenue 
for ten years amounted to $373,597.35, and in tlie same time the cOrpo 
ration had contributed and given away outside of the parish $388,141.05. 
The deficits were met by the sale of real estate and the consequent con- 
sumption of the principal. Gen. John a Dix, a vestryman since 1849, and 
a warden and the comptroller of the corporation since 1876, was the first 
to suggest measures to put a stop to the general giving away of every- 
thing to everybody. In 1868 the sale of St. John's Park to the Hudson 
Eiver Railway Company, and about the same time the falling in of the 
Astor and Lispenard leases, enabled Trinity to wipe out its debt. 


The property of the corporation, which common rumor makes cover 
pretty much the' whole of lower New York, west of Broadway, and to be 
worth from seventy to one hundred millions, consists actually of 750 lots 
which, in 1877, yielded an income of $456,786.45, less than the legal 
interest on seven million dollars, and the whole property, except the 
ground occupied by seven churches, four schoolhouses, four cemeteries, a 
Tectory, an infirmary, and a few vacant lots, was productive. In 1878 
the income was a little less. The corporation is about to pull down a 
large building on the corner of King and Greenwich streets, and erect 
-tenement houses on the site. For this purpose it will borrow money, as it 
now sells no lots, except in very rave instances, to accommodate adjacent 
ovmers who wish to enlarge their premises. Occasionally tenants have 



old houses which they neglect and let go to ruin, and these sometimes the 
corporation buys and. pute in order to be rented. 

Out of its revenue, say $450,000, the corporation pays city taxes, 
which, in 1877 were more than $100,500, besides considerabfe assessments. 
It wholly supports its seven churches, of which three are entirely free, two 
nearly free, and of the few pews rented in Trinity the highest brings but 
$85 a year. Besides its own churches, schools, infirmary, and sundry 
charities and societies, it supports wholly or in part eighteen more 
churches in the city, the principal of which are St. Luke^ in Hudson 
Street, which is allowed $10,000 a year, and All Saints', at the comer of 
Henry and Scammel streets, which draws $6,000 a year. The total of 
such allowances outside of the parish amounted in 1877 to-4 7,660.19, and 
in 1878 to $44,971.33. Its infirmary costs $7,300, and beds at St. Luke's 
Hospital $3,000 a year. The corporation expends its entire revenue in 
purposes for which the trust from its foundation was designed, and does 
not hoard one dollar. 




WE have had repeated inquiries respecting the above Estate, and as it 
is seldom the Treasury have occasion to administer to such a large 
amount of personalty, it may be of interest for many to know the history 
of the deceased, and of the litigation to which his intestacy gave rise. 

In January, 1787, a Mr. John Turner, then a young man, entered as 
a junior clerk in the Ordnance Office in the Tower, at a salary of £70 a 
year. In April, 1787, he resigned that office and became clerk Jo the Sun 
Eire Office, where, in 1805 he rose to be chief clerk, and retired in 1835 on 
a pension of £200 a year. From 1807 to 1824 he lodged with Mrs. 
Derusier, at 130, Great Russell Street. In that year he removed to 13, 
Upper Thomhaugh Street (now Huntley Street), where he died on the 31st 
January, 1843, having, on the 21st March, 1841, been found a lunatic. He 
left a considerable fortune, estimated at the time from £80,000 to £100,000, 
the result of successful speculation, and more especially from the fortunate 
purchase of a lottery ticket. 

After his death advertisements were inserted calling for his Next of 
Kin, but, none appearing, Mr. George Maule, Sohcitor to the Treasury, 
obtained letters of Administration on behalf of the Crown, and the 
balance of the property, afterpayment of the debts and certain legacies left 
by an imperfect testamentary paper, was paid over to the Consolidated 
Fund. Some time after this payment, certain persons filed a Bill against 
Mr. Maule, claiming the property as the lawful Next of Kin. 

They stated the Intestate to have been the son of John and Elizabeth 
Turner, married at Badwell Ash, near Burry, in 1755, that he was baptized 
14th January, 1763, in the name of " Theophilus." He had three brothers 
and four sisters, two of whom survived him. "When about sixteen years 
of age " Theophilus," then residing with his father, who was in the service 
of the Rev. Dr. Ord, at Famham St. Martin's, left that place for some 
offense he had committed. It was proven that he was at school there. 

No further trace of him is found, but the Plaintiff says he is identi- 
cal with the "John Turner" who entered as a clerk in the Tower. The 
evidence showed that he had left his home, and his family understood Dr. 
Ord intended to bring him up to the sea ; thai he was called "Jack the 
Sailor," having been to sea for a short time, and the Claimant supposed 
that Dr. Ord had obtained for him the clerkship in the Tower. 
The Plaintiff produced also full evidence of statements made by Mr. 
John Turner, whilst a clerk in the Sun Fire Office, as to his early history, 



which showed that he was the "Theophilus" the son of Dr. Ord's gardener. 
At his office he would say nothing as to his early life,but occasionally he fell 
in with persons of his own class with whom he would be more communi- 
cative. The evidence of two of the witnesses to whom Turner had told 
his history was to the effect that he (Turner), lived in Suffolk in his early 
years, and left it in dungeon with his relations there. 

The Court of Chancery gave judgment in favor of the Plaintiff, and 
ordered Mr. Maule to pay into Court, before the 1st May, 1849, the sum of 
£52,373 3s. lid., being the net balance of deceased's property. The gross 
amount realized from his estate was £60,430. 


It is not often that persons have wealth suddenly thrust upon them; 
and the five Italians who discovered themselves to be jointly entitled to 
more than £300,000 cannot be looked upon as otherwise than exceedingly 
fortunate persons. The money in question was the whole of the residuary 
estate of an aged lady named Maria Mangini Brown, who died in 1871 in 
Hertford Street, Mayf air, whose parentage and possessions we propose to 
shortly discuss. Mrs. Brown was the daughter of one Antonio Mangini, 
better known in England as Anthony Mangin, who filled various different 
positions iij life, and subsequently towards the latter part of the last cent- 
ury found himself Agent and Consul-General in London of the Ligurian 
or Genoese Kepublic,' one of those strugghng states practically obliterated 
by the First Napolean. He was a commercial man who amassed much 
wealth ; and married an Englishwoman who pre-deceased him. Mangini 
himself died in 1803, leaving the bulk of his property to his daughter 
Maria, who is supposed to have married one Aquila Brown, by whom she 
had a daughter who died before her and left descendants who, unluckily 
for themselves, are unable to produce any certificate or other evidence of 
a marriage between Brown and their grandmother. All Maria Mangini 
Brown's issue, therefor, being either extinct or shut out, it became neces- 
sary on her death, in 1871, to seek her Next of Kin from among Consul 
Mangini's descendants, she not having left any valid will. None of these 
being forthcoming, the Treasury administered to her estate and assumed 
possession of her accumulated wealth, subsequently paying it into the 
Court of Chancery. Here, then, was a wide field for claimants to come 
from. There was no reason to suppose Antonio Mangini illegitimate, and 
he must therefore have Next of Kin in existence somewhere. --They came 
eventually, and were no less than thirteen in number, of whom one, a 
Mrs. Lane, actually got a Chancery decree made in her favor, ordering the 
payment to her alone of nearly the whole of the £300,000. Before, how- 
ever, she could enjoy the fruits of her judgment, certain Italians named 
Ffeccia, proved themselves nearer of kin than Mrs. Lane to the defunct 
Consul, and got her judgment reversed in their, favor. Two of these Prec- 
cias received their apportioned shares out of court, and retired to enjoy 
them to their native land ; but before the remaining three received theirs, 
a -Madame Sturla put in a claim on behalf of herself and four others, al- 
leging that they in turn were armed with evidence which would prove that 
they could supplant the Freccias just as the Freccias had ousted the un- 
fortunate Mrs. Lane. They did not deny that the Freccia family were 
Next of Kin to one Antonio Mangini who was born at St. Ilario,near Genoa, 
in 1735, but they asserted that Consul Mangini was quite another person 


of precisely the same name, who was born at Quarto, also near Jenoa, 
in 1744, and from whom they were lineally descended. To support 
these different views of the case evidence was produced which took 
Vice-Chancellor Malins fourteen days to hear, and upwards of 2,000 pages 
of printed documents were filed by the different parties. The case lay in a; 
nut-shell, but the kernel was difficult to extract. A strong point in the Frec- 
cia's favor as against the Sturlas was that on Consul Mangini's death in, 
1803 the ancestors of the former family asserted themselves' to be his heirs, 
and instituted abortive Chancery proceedings for declaring Mrs. Brown 
illegitimate, and themselves entitled to her father's property. It was 
thought that the Quarto Manginis would have been the first to do this had 
they really been of kin; but it was never satisfactorially shown that their 
Counsel's contention — viz., that they never knew that any proceedings at all 
were going on — was a just one. The question then depended entirely on the 
identity of the Consul, as the chains of representation of the two families 
with their two namesake ancestors were unbroken. We have not space to 
go into the evidence, which was of the usual conflicting character. 
Among other proof the Sturla family relied to a great extent on a docu- 
ment relating to the Cjonsul's appointment, discovered in the Genoese 
State -Archives, which they alleged bore on their view of the case ; but the 
Chief Clerk, to whom the matter was referred in the first instance, found 
that it had at some period been tampered with. This becoming known ta 
the Italian Government they required the paper to be returned to them, so 
it was not available for the Vice-Chancellor's inspection. Ultimately, after 
as little delay as was compatible with the greatness of the case, the Vice- 
Chancellor decided that the assertion of Madam Sturla and her co-claim- 
ants as representatives of the Quarto Mangini family had failed, and that 
the Ligurian Consul having been the Antonio Mangini born at St. Ilario,. 
the Freccias were entitled to the £300,000 left by his daughter. This judg- 
ment was delivered in his absence, and his reasons for it have yet to be 
made known. Be they what they may, however, the not- unsuspicious 
circumstance connected with the authenticity of Madam^Sburla's document- 
ary evidence, and the means, which it is admitted, were used to raise 
money to conduct her case, seems to point to the fact that had it been 
more just it would have been commenced sooner, and had she and her co- 
heirs been properly entitled they would not have needed a sort of joint- 
stock company, formed in Genoa, to raise funds for prosecuting it. The 
Vice-Chancellor dismissed the Sturlas' summons to vary his Chief Clerk's 
certificate, and also their action, with costs against them in each case. 
Whether the unsuccessful parties will appeal is not yet ascertained, and 
seems at least doubtful. Much stronger evidence will be needed to upset 
the case of their more fortunate opponents. 

Gazette of Notembek, 1880. — It will be remembered that this cele- 
brated case of unclaimed property which has now gone from the lowest to 
the highest of our Equity tribunals, was recently decided definitely by the 
House of Lords, against the appellants. A brief recapitulation of the facts 
of the case may be of interest. The deceased, Maria Mangini-Brown, an 
elderly widow lady, died at her residence, No. 38, Hertford Street, Mayfair, 
on 31st December, 1871, leaving about a quarter of a million sterling. All 
her descendants were either deceased or shut out, and as she made no 
valid testamentary disposition, the Crown took possession of her estate. 
Claimants were not long in coming forward, and ultimately the true Next 
of Kin of the deceased were found in the persons of a family named 


Preccia. They obtained a decree in their favor, and a portion of the fund 
was paid out to two of the claimants. Very soon after this, however, cer- 
tain other persons, among them a Mrs. Sturla, came forward, and asserted 
that they were the true Next of Kin of the intestate, whose father was not, 
as asserted by the Freccias, born at St. Ilario, near Genoa, in 1735, but 
another person, born at Quarto, not far from that town, in 1744. The 
question was one of identity, and although every authority before whom 
the case was brought, decided that the St. Ilario Mangini was the real 
''Simon Pure," the disappointed Sturlas appealed from every decision 
until the case was decided against them by the highest judicial tribunal in 
the Eealm. 

The case of Mrs. Sturla and her co-heirs depended, as has been already 
stated, on a document purporting to have been obtained from the State 
Archives office in Genoa, and which had been tampered with at some period 
or other. They have not only failed in their attempt to prove themselves 
what they are not, but are also saddled with all the costs of the former de- 
cisions against them ; they cannot even receive that condolence in their mis- 
iortune to which they would have been entitled had not questionable prac- 
tices been resorted to in order to strengthen their claim. , 


The litigation to which the above intestacy has given rise, has been 
the subject of discussion in the county of Kent and elsewhere for some 
time past. 

The intelligence that an heir was wanted to an estate of one Chapman, 
worth about £1,200 a year, is, of course, very interesting to all bearing 
that name ; and the happy news did not long remain a privileged subject 
of gossip among the people of that county. It was soon known over the coun- 
try, and, as is usual in such cases, was quickly taken up by our American cous- 
ins, who, according as it suited their whims or fancies, added or subtracted par- 
ticulars as to the family, taking care in all cases to increase considerably the 
original amount — in one instance to an incredible figure. The estate is sit- 
uated between Ashford and Faversham, and the last possessors were two 
old ladies, Elizabeth and Catherine Chapman. The former died in 
October, 1863, and bequeathed her moiety to the tenants ; the other moiety 
was the property of Catherine Chapman, a lunatic, who died at Periton 
Court, Westwell, Kent, on 9th November, 1869, a spinster, and intestate, 
and was undisposed of. This is the subject of dispute. Advertisements 
were inserted in 1863, by the Commissioners in Lunacy, calling for the heirs 
of Catherine Chapman, with a view of their being appointed committees 
of the lunatic. Inquiries and researches were made into the Chapman 
pedigree, but the result was such a multiplicity of Chapmans that, owing 
to the faulty way in which the old parish registers were kept, it was almost 
impossible to distinguish the difEerent branches of the family. There were, 
in several instances, at the same time, more than one Chapman of the 
same Christian name in the same neighborhood, and of about the same age. 

Col, Deedes, as lord of the manor, claimed the estate as an escheat in 
default of heirs ; but, after two trials, the suit was decided against him, 
there being, indeed, no lack of heirs. The case came on in March last, 
before the Lord Chief Justice and a special jury, against the tenants of 
a farm in the parish of Great Chart, Kent, and forming part of the estate. 
Our space will not permit us to give particulars of the claimant's pedigree. 


Suffice it to say that the plaintifE in this instance claimed on the maternal 
line, as a descendant of the fifth generation of Susan Manooch, also mar- 
ried to a Chapman, the sister of Martha, wife of William Chapman, of 
"VVestwell, who died in 1748, and who was the great-grandfather of the 

The defendants assert that the rightful heir is Thomas Elvey, a 
descendant of William Chapman, of Badlesmere, whom they state to be iden- 
tical with the paternal ancestor of the intestate who died in 1748. 

The difficulty was to determine who was the heir from the number of 
claimants, for, as Mr. Hawkins observed at a previous trial, there were 
about 450 relatives of John Chapman living about the neighborhood, where 
the Chapmans had been settled for centuries. The jury found in favor 
of the defendants, and anotlier action must still be brought to determine 
who is entitled. 


Those who have had occasion to search the parochial registers in this 
country previous to the General Registration Act of 183 7,cannot fail to have 
been struck by the extraordinary carelessness with which these records were 
kept. In some parishes the baptisms, marriages and burials were indis- 
criminately entered without any attempt at regularity, and in others in 
the form of a diary. In some instances even the facts have been altogether 
omitted to be entered, the certificate granted at the time remaining the 
only evidence. From many registers leaves have been destroyed and 
names cut out, and in some parishes whole volumes are wanting. It is but 
fair to state that in the towns they were naturally more carefully attended to. 

Lay registration being unknown previous to 1837, it is frequently 
very difficult, if not impbssible, to obtain certificates, and it is necessary 
then to have recourse to other means — family Bibles, wills, etc. We are 
in this respect, a striking contrast to our neighbors across the Channel, 
who have always attached the greatest importance to the preservation of 
these records. The way in which their registers are kept, and the full par- 
ticulars they afford, render the compilation of any pedigree comparatively 
easy. A case came recently before Vice-Chancellor Sir Richard Malins 
which illustrates the impossibility of sometimes producing certificates and 
showing the secondary evidence which is admitted in such cases. A Mr. 
Richard Thomas died recently intestate as to the residue of his estate. 
An administration suit was instituted in the Chancery Division, and as is 
usual in snch matters, a chief clerk was directed to inquire who were the 
testator's' Next of Kin. He certified that there were twelve nephews and 
nieces of the testator who were entitled to share equally in the distribu- 
tion of his residuary estate. Amongst these he included the five children 
of one Jonathan Mickleburgh, of Crediton, and Elizabeth, his wife, 
formerly Elizabeth Thomas, spinster, the sister of the testator. The 
other Next of Kin alleged that these five persons were illegitimate, their 
parents never having been married, and that, consequently, they were not 
entitled to share in distribution to the residuary estate of the testator. 
No actual evidence, either positive or negative was adduced in respect of 
this marriage. From the year 1804 down to the date of Mrs. Mickle- 
burgh's death in 1835, the parties in question had lived together as man 
and wife, and were acknowledged and received as such by their friends and 
in society. Two old inhabitants of Crediton, stated that within their 
memory, Mr. and Mrs. Mickleburgh had always been considered by the 


inhabitants as man and wife. Moreover the testator himself believed 
his sister to have been properly married and left record of his belief by 
his will, in which a legacy is left to his niece, one of the daughters of his 
Bister, Elizabeth Micklebargh. The Vice-Chaucellor observed that where 
two people had lived together for thirty years, during the whole of which 
time they were received^ society as husband an wife, it would be very hard 
if their family were to be bastardized twenty-four years after the death of 
the survivor. In conclusion, his lordship said he should found his decision 
on the broad principle essential to the welfare of society, that where two 
persons have lived together for many years as husband and wife, have been 
universally received as such, and have had their children baptized in the 
usual manner, they should be considered as married. Accordingly, the Vice- 
Chancellor decided that the children of Jonathan and Elizabeth Mickle- 
burgh are legitimate and entitled to rank as Next of Kin on the estate of 
the testator, Kichard Thomas. 

EB Goodman's trusts. 

This appeal from a decision of the Master of the Rolls raises a very 
important question — whether the word children in the Statute for the 
distribution of Intestate Estates includes only children legitimate accord- 
ing to English law, or includes those who are legitimate according to the 
law of the country in which the parents are domiciled at the time of their 
birth, but illegitimate according to English law. The facts are briefly 
these. Miss Rachael Goodman, an English lady, died in London on the 
15th March, 1878, intestate as to one-third of her estate. All her brothers 
and sisters had died in her life time, two only leaving issue who survived 
their aunt, viz. : Isaac Goodman, who left four children, and respect- . 
ing whose rights as four of the Next of Kin there is no question, and Lyon 
Goodman who, according to English law, left but one legitimate child. 
This Lyon Goodman lived in England with one Charlotte Smith, and by 
her had three illegitimate children who, being bom in England, have raised 
no claim. In 1820 he took up his abode in Amsterdam, and continued to 
reside in that city until 1826. Thither he was followed -by Charlotte 
Smith and the three children. In 1821 a fourth child, named Hannah, 
was born to them. In the following year he married Charlotte Smith, and 
after the marriage he had by her another child, Mary. By the Dutch laws 
all children born beforethe marriage are legitimated by the marriage. Han- 
nah Goodman, now Mrs. Pieret, is to all intents and purposes legitimate in 
Holland, her native country, and the question in this matter arose, whether 
she is to be considered legitimate according to the law of England, and 
consequently entitled, as one of the Next of Kin, to a share in that portion 
of the estate as to which her late aunt died intestate. The Master of the 
Rolls held that the deceased, being a British subject domiciled in this 
country, her estate being administered according to Enghsh law, that such 
only can be considered as Next of Kin who are legitimate according to the 
laws of England, and not according to the laws of the country where 
the parents are domiciled at the time of the child's birth. 

Prom this decision Mrs. Pieret appealed. The case was argued on the 
4th of March, when their Lordships took time to consider their judgment, 
which was given at considerable length on the 13th inst. Lord Justice 
Lush was of opinion that the judgment of the Master of the Rolls was 
right, and ought to be afl&rmed, but Lords Justices Cotton and Jamesi 


being of a contrary opinion, the judgment was conseqaently reversed, in 
accordance with the views of the majority of the Court. 

It is a recognized fact that the estate of a deceased person is distrib- 
uted by the Enghsh Courts according. to the laws of the countrv in which 
he is domiciled ; and had Lyon Goodman, being domiciled in Holland 
died intestate, his persenal property in England would have been distrib- 
uted according to Dutch law — that is, Mrs. Pieret would have been consid- 
ered as one of his lawful children. This fact was admitted on both sides • 
but the case before the Court was the administration of an estate according 
to Enghsh law. Lords Justices Cotton and James were of opiaion that, 
in considering the legitimacy of a person born in a foreign country to rank 
as Next of Kin on an English estate, the law of England will so far depart 
from its own recognized rule, and consider as legitimate a person who is so 
in his native country, although illegitimate according to English law. 
Upon this point Lord Justice Lush differed from his colleagues. It would 
certainly appear an inconsistency that Mrs. Pieret should be considered 
in this said country as legitimate and entitled to succeed to her father's estate, 
and as illegitimate and debarred from all share in her aunt's estate • but 
English law affords many examples of such incongruities, the present 
decision being among the number, as, although Mrs. Pieret is declared 
legitimate, and entitled to succeed to personalty as a collateral, she would 
be excluded from any share in real estate as illegitimate, according to the 
judgment of the House of Lords in " Birtwhistle v. Bardill." Our space is 
too limited to allow us to follow the arguments of the learned judges in 
this case ; we can only briefly notice the facts. The judgments on both 
sides of the question are very forcible and evenly balanced ; so much so 
that whichever side is considered first appears to be irrefutable by the force 
of its reasoning. Such could hardly be otherwise than the case, when we 
have such authorities as the Master of Rolls and Lord Justice Lush on 
the one side, and Lords Justices Cotton and James on the other. The 
case may yet be taken- to a higher tribunal for final revision, and under the 
circumstances, as a matter of public interest, we may express the hope that 
such may be the case, although in the interest of the litigantsj we should 
hope that it may rest where it is. The amount really involved by this 
question is not considerable (some £3,000, we believe), and we are afraid 
the recognized Next of Kin in the first instance will, even if successful on 
a further appeal, hot reap much benefit from its decision. 


The administration of this estate was made the subject of debate in 
the House or Commons, attention being called thereto by Colonel Alexan- 
der, the member for South Ayreshire, and the discussion that ensued is 
fully reported in the Times of 27th June, 1877. Mr. Paterson, of Jamaica, 
having acquired a large fortune, bequeathed one-half to his sister and her 
children and the other half to his illegitimate son, expressly stipulating 
that should his said son die without heirs, his share should not go to the 
testator's sister or heirat-law, but to a distant cousin of his own. 

The illegitimate son came to Scotland, where he lived a secluded life, 
and spent but little of his large income. He appears to have been most 
eccentric, sought to conceal his property, and was not on friendly terms 
with his father's relatives. He died in January, 1874, intestate, leaving 
personal property amounting to about £40,000, and being a bastard, the 
Treasury took possession of his estate. 


Colonel Alexander claims that his constituent Mr. Paterson, of Mont- 
gomery, be put in the same position as he would have occupied had the 
deceased, his cousin-german been legitimate. 

Mr. W. H. Smith, on behalf of the Treasury, submits that the law 
gives the property to the State, leaving a discretionary power to the Treas- 
ury as to its distribution. Although in this case no will had been pro- 
duced, there is no evidence that one does not exist, as in another case a 
will had turned up, and the principal was claimed together with 4 per 
cent interest after fifty years. Several parties claim an interest in this es- 
tate, the solicitors alleging that the intestate intended leaving them a sum 
of nearly £30,000 which had stood in their names for the last twenty years. 
The Bailies of Kilmarnock represent it would be carrying out the wishes 
of the deceased if the money were given for the public objects of that town. 
The minister of the High Church at Kilmarnock, confirmed the statement 
that the deceased entertained an antipathy against his relations, and he 
inferred that the deceased probably intended to leave him a, legacy. The 
law, however, gave the estate to the Crown, and the relations had already 
been provided for to the extent of one-half the original property. 

It was stated in the course of the inquiry that the property of intes- 
tate bastards was formerly administered to in Scotland by the old Scotch 
Lords of the Treasury, then by the Barons of the Exchequer, and since 
1833 by the Lords of the Treasury. Prior to 1836, in Scotland a bastard 
was unable to make a will, even in favor of his own children, his estate be- 
ing dealt with by the Crown. The following is the general principal by 
which the Treasury is guided in dealing with the estates of intestate bas- 
tards, as stated by the Secretary to the Treasury in answer to a question 
by Mr. Grieve, and reported in the Times of the 24tli February : — " First of 
all the claims of any individual are dealt with. An inquiry is made 
whether there is any evidence, either by an informal will or otherwise of 
an intention to make provision for that individual. Then they consider 
further whether a strong claim exists on the part of individuals with re- 
gard to whom there is no such evidence. Then they proceed to consider 
what would have been the disposal of the property supposing the deceased 
had been legitimate, and they follow the principles laid down by the law 
for the distribution of property in the case of legitimate persons who die 

The resolution of Colonel Alexander was negatived by 197 to 135, 
showing a majority of 62. 

We have read with much interest the remarks of the hon. members 
on behalf of the Treasury, and especially of the disinterested way in which 
it appears that their Lordships distribute the funds of estates in their charge. 
We fully admit the great responsibility incumbent upon them, but we submit 
that where their Lordships deal with millions of the public money, they 
might be more communicative in their replies respecting estates under 
their control (in most cases amounting only to a few hundred pounds), and 
not endeavor to preclude inquiries by short, evasive replies which frequently 
deter claimants from establishing their title, and often inspire the pub- 
lic with the idea that the British Government consider " Might as Eight." 



THE history of the " Lutine" is remarkable, not merely for the amount of 
specie got from'time to time out of the wreck, but from the fact that, 
although the wreck occurred in the year 1799, salving operations have been 
continued to the present time. The facts are as follows : — On October 9, 1 799 
the "Lutine" of 33 guns, sailed from Yarmouth Eoads with several passen- 
gers, and an immense quantity of treasure, for the Texel. In the course 
of the day it came on to blow a heavy gale, which continued the whole 
night ; the ship drove on the outer bank of the Ply Island passage, and 
was lost. The darkness of the night and violence of the gale precluded 
all possibility of giving her the least assistance. At daylight not a vestige 
of the vessel was to be seen ; she had gone to pieces, and every soul, except- 
ing two, had perished. The money she had on board is said to have 
amounted to £140,000. 

Conflicting accounts of the foregoing disaster appeared in the news- 
papers, and there was considerable difference of opinion as to the value of 
the lost specie ; the lowest estimate is that given above, the highest £3, 
000,000. The most vague and contradictory statements were promul- 
gated as to the contents of the " Lutine"; some writers stated that the 
Grown Jewels of Holland formed part of her cargo; others that the money 
to pay the British troops (then in Holland) was on board ; while others in- 
sisted that the treasure was consigned by English to Hamburg merchants ; 
each and all of these statements contained a certain substratum of truth. 
It appeared that the treasure had been consigned to Hamburg by certain 
mercantile firms, having been first very heavily insured in various ofiices 
On receipt of a certificate of the loss of the vessel, the underwriters promptly 
paid the claims. Salvage operations were then commenced, and in 
about eighteen months £80,000, or thereabouts rewarded the efforts of the 
divers and others engaged in the enterprise. The Dutch Government, by. 
reason of the wreck having occurred on their coast, took two-thirds of 
the specie found, the remaining one-third going to the finders. Some 
silver spoons and a sword were among the articles found. 

In 1814 further attempts were made to get at the wreck, which had be- 
come deeply imbedded in the sand, 'but with very indifferent success ; The 
results of seven years' toil (1814-1821) being the recovery of only a few 
pieces of silver. In 1823 a Company was formed for the purpose of pros- 
ecuting a further search for the lost treasure, the Dutch Government by 
agreement taking half the amount recovered, in consideration of a sum 
of money advanced to the Company. Several thousand pounds were spent 
in diving operations, but the result was absolutely nil. Next, Lloyd^s 


appeared on the scene, and after much negotiation the Dutch Government 
agreed to hand over half of any further salvage recovered to Lhy^s. From 
1832 to 1857 spasmodic efforts were made to fish up further specie, but the 
result was merely anxiety and vexation of spirit to those engaged in the 
venture. In 1857 a further agreement was entered into between the Dutch 
Government and LhydHs, and from 1857 to 1861 (sixty years after the 
wreck took place) great good fortune attended the efforts of the searchers, 
about £35,000 being the amount of Lloyd!s share ; some interesting relics 
were also found, including part of the ship's rudder, and her bell. By the 
destruction of the Royal Exchange by fire, in 1838, the books and papers 
relating to Lhyd^s were lost, and the original underwriters of the " Lutine" 
cannot now be traced. 

In 1871 the Society of LloytPs applied for a special act of Parliament ; 
the preamble of that Act concisely recites the history of the negotiations 
between Lloyd's and the Dutch Government, and states that the Committee 
of Lloyds had in hand a sum of about £35,000, resulting from the salving 
operations aforesaid. 

The following extracts from that Act will be interesting to claimants •. 
" Section 34 provides that the Society of LloySs may from time to time aid 
in or undertake in such manner as to them seems fit the discovery, recovery, 
protection, and restoration, or other disposal of property before or after the 
passing of the Act, wrecked, sunk, lost, or abandoned, or found, or recovered 
in or beneath the sea, or on the shore at home or abroad," 

" Section 35 provides that the Society may from time to time do or 
join in doing all such lawful things as they think expedient, with a view 
to further salving from the wreck of the "Lutine", and hold, receive, and ap- 
ply for that purpose so much of the money to be received by means of 
salving therefrom .... and the net money produced thereby, and the 
said sum of, £35,000 shall be applied for the purposes connected! with ship- 
ping or marine insurance, according to a scheme to be prepared by the 
Society and confirmed by Order in Council on the recommendation of the 
Board of Trade after- or subject to such pubUc notice to claimants of any 
part of the money aforesaid to come in, and such investigation of claims 
and such barring of claims not made or not proved, and such reservation 
of rights (if any) as the Board of Trade thinks fit," 

Possibly in years to come a violent storm may arise, and the bed of 
sand now covering the wreck be again shifted, thus affording scope for 
further diving operations. 

A parallel case to that of the "Lutine" was that of the "Thetis", a British 
frigate, wrecked on the coast of Brazil in 1830, with £163,000 in bullion 
on board. The hull went to pieces, leaving the treasure upon the bottom 
in five or six fathoms water. The Admiral on the Brazil Station and the 
captains and crew of four sloops-of-war were engaged for eighteen months 
in recovering the treasure. The service was attended with great skill, 
labor, and danger, and four lives were lost. A good deal of litigation was 
the result, as disputes arose between the parties as to the amount of re- 
ward for the salvors. The Court of Admiralty awarded £17,000; the 
Privy Council £39,000, and £35,800 for expenses. 

Some years ago a Company, styled " The Wreck Recovery and Sal- 
vage Company (Limited)," was launched under distinguished patronage, 
for carrying on the business of " Ship Eaisers and Cargo Salvors." It had 
however but a brief existence. 

The following Advertisement contams materials for an interesting 
tale of the sea : — 


"Eobert Fleurian, otherwise Florio, who, in 1793, went as steward oa 
board a brig, which sailed from Wapping bound for the West Indies or 
America, and was compelled soon after to put into the port of Liverpool 
for repairs, where she lay up'_^for some time. During such time the said 
Eobert Flurian wrote to his brother in London, saying he thought he 
ehould not wait for the vessel, but get another ship, since which time noth- 
ing has been heard of him, nor of the said vessel, but it is supposed she 
aailed from Liverpool and was lost at sea, and that the said Robert Florio 
perished . . . He would, if now living, be entitled to certain property under 
the will of his mother, or if he is dead, his wife or children would have an 
interest in such property." 

Some five and twenty years ago a whole family were lost in the wreck 
of an emigrant vessel. The following facts, taken from a report of the 
case, show conclusively that loss of life at sea may give rise to family com- 
plications and years of litigation : — 

John TuUey, by his Will, bequeathed all his real and personal Estate 
to trustees for the benefit of his only child, Mary Ann, till she attained 21, 
or marriage, then to pay her £500 ; then, for her separate use, during life ; 
on her decease, to her children. Testator died in 1833. In June, 1834, 
Mary Ann TuUey married John Underwood. Three children were born 
unto them — a daughter and two sons. By Orders of the Court of Chan- 
cery, the trust estate on the death of John Tulley's first executors became 
vested in the appellant, William Wing, and the respondent, Richard 

On October 4, 1853, Mary Ann Underwood duly made her will, and 
disposed of the property she took under her father's will, thus : — "to my 
husband, John underwood, his heirs, etc., subject to the estates and inter- 
ests of my children therein, under the will of my late father ; and in case 
my said husband should die in my lifetime, then I bequeath the said heredita- 
ments, etc., to William Wing . . . ." Her husband and Wing were named 
executors. John Underwood, on the same 4th day of October, 1853, exe- 
cuted his will, and thereby devised and bequeathed all^his real and personal 
estate to the appellant iipon trust for his wife, Mary Ann Underwood, her 
heirs, etc., absolutely. Then came the following proviso: — "and in case 
my said wife shall die in my lifetime, then I direct that my said real and 

Sersonal estate shall be held by my said trustee, upon trust, for my three chil- 
ren, to be equally divided among them ; and, in case all of them shall 
die under the age of twenty-one .... then to the said William Wing, 
his heirs, etc., absolutely." Testator appointed his wife and said William 
Wing, executrix and executor. 

On October 13, 1853, John Underwood and his wife, with their three 
■children, embarked together in the "Dalhousie," an emigrant ship, bound for 
Australia, and on the 19th of the same month the ship was wrecked ofE 
Beachy Head, and the father, mother, and three children were all drowned 
at sea. Now the complications began. Wing proved the wills of both John 
Underwood and his wife, Mrs. Underwood, senior, in January, 1854, took 
out Letters of Administration to the goods of her granddaughter Catherine, 
who was seen alive after her parents haid perished. She also filed a bill 
against Wing, praying for an account of the personal estate of John Under- 
wood, and of the separate estate of his wife, and that her own right as 
administratrix of Catherine in the residue of the two personal estates might 
be ascertained and declared. The bill alleged that in the events which 
had happened no beneficial right in the personal property vested in Wing. 


Evidence was taken on the subject of the deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Under- 
wood and their children, and a medical man explained the process of 
drowning. In his opinion, assuming the four persons in question to have 
been in a continued state of submersion, death would take place in the 
case of all in two minutes at the outside. Two persons, both in health, 
being totally submerged at the same moment, asphyxia would ensue in the 
case of each at the same instant, as nearly as he could conceive. A person 
of seventy would live as long in such circumstances as a person of thirty, 
— assuming them both to be in health, — and a female as long as a male, 
and a weak man as long as a strong one. He could not, medically or phys- 
iologically, give any opinion whether Mr. or Mrs. Underwood was the sur- 
vivor. This evidence was corroborated by another medical man. A wit- 
ness for the defendant was of the opinion that the father survived the 
wife and two boys. Two other medical men confirmed this opinion. I^f 
will, therefore, be seen that in this, as in some other cases, the doctors dif- 
ferred and the lawyers consequently doubted. In 1864 the suit of Under- 
wood V. Wing was heard before the Master of the EoUs, who made a decree 
declaring the Tulleys entitled in equal shares to the residuary personal 
estate of the testator, John TuUey. This decree was appealed against, but 
was, in 1855, affirmed. Another bill was filed against Wing and the Tul- 
leys, and a similar decree was made to that made in the former suit. On 
the appeal to the House of Lords, both the suits were treated as involving- 
the same question, so far as Wing was concerned. Elaborate arguments 
were urged by learned Counsel on both sides, and numerous authorities 
cited, but the result was that the former decrees were confirmed. The 
foregoing case illustrates the glorious uncertainty of the law, and shows 
that in case of shipwreck, the possession of an estate may depend upon 
whether one member of a family survived the other by a few seconds only. 

A similar case came before the Civil Tribunal of Marseilles, in 1882. 
Husband and wife perished in a boat accident, and on the answer to the 
question who was the survivor, £75,000 depended. 

The following case will be especially interesting to readers of the sea- 
faring class, as it gives the history of property bequeathed to two seamen 
who, unfortunately, were lost at sea, and consequently never inherited the- 
same. The facts were these : — Eichard Corbitt, who died in 1839, by his 
will, directed the residue of his property to be converted and divided 
amongst his three children and grandchild. Of these children, James and 
Charles were merchant seamen, the former being the master and the latter 
the second mate of a ship called the "Thames," which traded between England 
and the West Indies. They left Demerara for England on the 9th of 
December, 1828, and touched at Dominica, on the 24th of that month, 
after which they were never seen nor heard of. Upon these facts being 
proven, the Master came to the conclusion that the sons survived the,' 

The Master's Eeport was disputed, and after learned arguments. Vice- 
Chancellor Knight Bruce said : — 

"The small amount of the property, the time and money which have' 
been already consumed in the investigation of this matter, as well as the- 
possibility that the expression of a judicial opinion on the question of fact 
may the more readily enable any party dissatisfied with my judgment to^ 
obtain that of the Lord Chancellor — all these considerations induce me to- 
give and to act upon the opinion, which the evidence before me impresses 
upon my mind There is no doubt the two men died. The question 


is, whether they died in their father's lifetime It is not for me now 

to decide what rule of evidence ought to guide the Court in a case where 
there is no probability one way or the other — where, for instance, there is 
no question of health or danger ; but where, on a particular day, a healthy 
man is seen exposed to no danger, and is never see a nor heard of again — 
that is not a case which it is now necessary to decide I am of opin- 
ion that these men died in their father's lifetime." 

This decision seems to have given satisfaction to the parties, as it was 
not appealed from. Some very intricate questions on the construction of 
the testator's will, however, arose when the cause came on for further con- 
sideration, and possibly a very large share of the estate was frittered away 
in costs. 

The following are specimens of Advertisements arising from loss of 
life at sea : — 

Five Pounds Eew^aed. — "Whereas Samuel Brooks, of Jesus College, 
Cambridge, did, on the evening of Monday, the 25th of August, 1851, witli 
his boatmen named Chellews and Stevens (both inhabitants of St. Ives, 
in Cornwall), sale from Milford Haven in a small yacht called the "Jack- 
daw", and neither the said Samuel Brooks nor the said boatmen have since- 
returned to their homes. The said Samuel Brooks was short in statue and 
'23 years of age. The night of the 25th of August, 1851, was very stormy, 
and the " Jackdaw" and its crew are supposed to have been lost at sea. Any 
person giving information .... tending to prove that the said Samuel 
Brooks is living, or if he is dead, or to prove the finding of the "Jackdaw,"' 
or any part of that vessel, shall receive the above reward. 

The following appeared just 100 years ago, and relates to the loss of 
a ship and every soul on board : —

and master of the merchant ship "Commerce," who, with his wife and every 
person on board, was lost in the said ship, on her passage from Jamaica to- 
Bristol, in a violent gale of wind, in September,' 1783, will apply to ... . 
they will hear of something greatly to their advantage. 

It would be easy to multiply instances of persons supposed to have 
been lost at sea having been advertised for in connection with Unclaimed 
Money, but the foregoing are probably sufficient for the purposes of this. 

The approximate value of vessels of all nationalities with their cargoes 
lost during the year 1880, is said to have been no less than £68,327,000, 
including British property of the value of £47,495,000. These are start- 
ling figures. During the same year, unfortunately, about 4,000 lives were 
lost. — Frestm's Unclaimed Money. 



A GOOD many people are " making haste to be rich," and in the hurry 
of business charitable intentions are forgotten. If good resolutions 
are made, the putting of them into execution is too often deferred to a 
more conyenient season, which in many cases never arrives, for death steps 
in and puts an end to further procrastination; while, in other cases, 
intending testators endeavor to make up for past neglect by bequeathing 
magnificent sums to Charities, in the hope of perpetuating the renown of 
their good deeds, as well as of benefiting the Charities. The news of such 
bequests must always be disappointing to Heirs-at-Law and to Next of 
Kin. These bequests are made under the belief, doubtless, that " a man 
may do what he likes with his own." Such a belief may be a very com- 
forting one, but it rests on no sure foundation, as will be seen by the fol- 
lowing extract from what is known as the Mortmain Act, passed in the 
reign of King Gteorge II. : 

" Whereas, gifts or alienations of lands, tenements, or hereditaments 
in mortmain are prohibited or restrained by Magna Charta and divers 
other wholesome laws, as prejudicial to and against the common utility ; 
nevertheless this publick mischief has of late greatly increased by many 
large and improvident alienations or dispositions made by languishing or 
dying persons, or by other persons, to uses called charitable uses, to take 
place after their deaths, to the disherison of their lawful Heirs : For rem- 
edy whereof be it enacted. That from and after the 24th day of June, 
1736, no manors, lands, nor any sum or sums of money, goods, chattels, 
stocks in the publick funds, securities for money, or any other personal 
estate whatsoever, to be laid out or disposed of in the purchase of any 
lands shall be given, granted to or upon any person or persons for the 
iDenefit of any charitable uses whatsoever, unless such gift be made by deed 
dn the presence of two or more credible witnesses, twelve kalendar months 
at least before the death of such donor and be inroUed in His Majesty's 
High Court of Chancery within six kalendar months next after the exe- 
cution thereof." 

It is pretty evident that the provisions of the Mortmain Act are not 
generally known ; otherwise testators would be more careful when making 
their last Wills and testaments. It may be said that any one wishing to 
dispose of a large sum of money for charitable purposes would naturally 
consult a solicitor as to the best mode of procedure, but it is a well-known 
fact that many wealthy and eccentric individuals dislike this course ; hence 
the reason of so many " Wills of their Own " being made and upset. 



The Mortmain Act awears to have been passed for the benefit of 
Heirs-at-Law and Next of Kin, as instances are not.unknown of relatives 
being entirely " cut off " by a whimsical testator giving, in a pet, his whole 
fortune to eleemosynary uses but testators of this class cannot be too 
careful in framing their Wills, as may be seen by the following cases : 

A testator gave his real and personal estate for building or purchasing 
a chapel ; if any surplus, the same to go towards support of the minister, 
and, if further surplus, to charitable purposes, as executor should think 
fit. This trust was held to be wholly void ; the real estate went to the 
Heir, and the personalty to the Next of Kin. 

In another case, a testator gave his residuary estate for the purpose of 
bringing up children in the Roman Catholic faith. Here the fund did not 
^0 as the testator intended, nor did it go to the Next of Kin, but to 
ithe Grown, to be disposed of for some other charitable use under the Eoyal 
Sign Manual. 

A case decided by the Master of the Rolls, known as " Smith's Poor 
Kin Case," arising out of a charitable bequest made 250 years ago, has 
given rise to a good deal of discussion. The facts were these : In 1627 
Alderman Smith bequeathed £1,000 to be invested in land of the value of 
£60 a year, the income to be distributed for the relief and ransom of cap- 
tives taken by the Turkish pirates. Also a further sum of £1,000, to be 
invested in like manner, the income to be applied for the relief of the 
poorest of his kindred — such as were not able to work for their living, 
namely, — " sick, aged, and impotent persons, and such as could not main- 
tain their own charge." In pursuance of this benevolent testator's wishes, 
-an estate was bought at Kensington, and the income applied as directed 
by the terms of the Will. In course of time the value of the estate 
increased prodigiously, and so did the poor kindred ; there were only four 
in 1700, but in 1877 they numbered no less than 700. The estate is now 
•valued at upwards of £11,000 a year. 

In 1772, the trustees having long since ceased to apply one moiety of 
the income for the relief of captives taken by Turkish pirates, obtained an 
Act of Parliament enabling them to apply the whole income for the ben- 
efit of the Poor Kin of Smith. The Charity Commissioners made inquiry 
with a view to the preparation of a scheme for the better management of 
these funds, and found that in 1773 there were only fifteen poor kindred 
entitled to share therein. In 1807 there were twelve families claimants, 
and in 1830 there were fourteen families, numbering in the aggregate 
100 adults, recipients of, or candidates for, a share of Alderman Smith's 
bounty. In 1868 the 412 "poor" kindred lived in 110 households in the 
United Kingdom, France, and the Colonies. The claimants on this 
dharity comprise persons who were apparently never intended to be bene- 
fited by the terms of the original bequest. For instance, a retired drug- 
gist, a retired surgeon, a wholesale grocer, a gentleman (occupation not 
■given), a surgeon, and a music master — these claimants admit, for the 
purposes of apportionment, that the income of each exceeds £300 a year. 
"One claimant asks for the payment of a governess for his children ; and 
another (who is described as an actor, a refreshment hou«e keeper, and a 
■cupper) begs for assistance to go to the seaside ; another (a reduced pen- 
sioner) has £440 a year. One annuitant is described as occasionally 
coming to receive her dole (£40) with black eyes, saying " she had fallen 
down.'^ One of Alderman Smith's poor kin is represented as ragged and 
destitute, and had, by his own statement, " been dying of consumption for 


above twenty years ;" another, who had once been a soldier, and after- 
wards a bootmaker, had been in prison for deserting his family, while 
another is described as a regular beggar, in whose family the charity had 
done much mischief. 

Another claimant wrote to the trustees thus : 

" Gentlemest : I take the liberty of writeing again to inform you 
that I was entitled to my allowance at Christmas, and I don't see why I 
should be kept seven months witliout it. It his my right, and I did not 
send to ask for it till I inherrited it. If you will not send it to me, I will 

come and see the Trustees about it and I shall expect you 

to pay my expenses there and back. I am almost distressed. I owe £8 
for rent and £4 for clothes, and £3 10s. for provisions, and I have not got 
one shilling towards paying either of the bills, and I think it is very hard 
you will not send me my allowance and it his my rights, and which I ought 
ito have had it last Christmas." 

The Charity Commissioners have been directed to frame a new 
Scheme, and to apply a portion of the income to general charitable use. 
Judging by letters in the Times from Alderman Smith's Next of Kin, the 
decision of the Master of the EoUs has caused great dismay in the camp 
of the Smiths ; they claim the whole fund, and regard appropriation of any 
portion thereof to general charitable uses as " confiscation." 

Cases of a similar kind are exceedingly numerous. The following 
illustrates how uncertainly the Mortmain Act works: — A gentleman 
devised a freehold estate to trustees in trust to sell it, and pay the pro- 
ceeds, together with his residuary personal estate, to the trustees of the 
British Museum, to be by them employed for the benefit of that institu- 
tion. The question was whether this devise was void under the Mortmain. 
Act. Counsel for the trustees of the Museum contended that the British 
Museum was not a charitable institution. It was founded by the munifi- 
cence of the State for the benefit of the public. Every gift for the use of 
the public is not necessarily a charity. The Museum is National property, 
and for that reason it was held in Thellusson v. Woodford that the devise 
to the King for the use of the Sinking,Fand was good. Counsel for the 
Heir-at-Law contended that the British Museum was no more National 
property than a Hospital or College of Royal foundation, and that the 
devise was void as' being within the Statute of Mortmain. The Vice- 
Chancellor decided in favor of the Heir-at-Law, observing " that it had 
long been settled that a gift of the price of land is, in effect, a gift of land 
under the Mortmain Act. In Mr. Thellusson's "Will there was a residuary 
gift, in certain events, towards payment of the National Debt ; but those 
events had not happened, nor probably never would happen ; and no 
decision had been given as to the validity of that gift. In this Will there 
is no such gift to the Nation, but a gift to an institution established by the 
Legislature for the collection and preservation of objects of science and of 
art, partly supplied at the pnbhc expense, and partly from individual liber- 
ality." The Vice-Chancellor added : — " I consider that every gift for a 
public purpose, whether local or general, is within the Mortmain Act,, 
although not a charitable use within the common and narrow sense 
of these words ; and consequently, I must declare this devise void as to the 
real estate." 

Having shown how easy it is for a charitable donor's intentions to be 
frustrated by legal technicalities, it may be convenient to give a note of 
one or two cases where charitable bequests have been held to be valid. 


A bequest to the Chancellor of the Exchequer for the time being, to 
be appropriated to the benefit and advantage of Great Britain, was held to 
be valid as a charitable bequest, as far as regarded property of a personal 
nature, but not as regarded realty. 

In another case, a testator by his will directed that a sum not exceed- 
ing £50 a year should be paid to a literary man, preference to be given to 
one not more than forty years of age. By a codicil he, declared that his 
object was to give what little assistance he could to a worthy literary per- 
son who had not been very successful in his career, and, as far as possible, 
to enable him to assist in extending the knowledge of those subjects in the 
various branches of literature to which the testator had turned his atten- 
tion: — "Held, that, provided the literary works of the testator were con- 
sistent with religion and morality, this was a charity to which the law of 
England would give effect." Many a poor author has probably had 
cause to rejoice that this benevolent testator's intentions were not frus- 

The following amusing anecdote is from the Pall Mall Gazette. It 
may be safely termed " An Unintentional Benefaction," and will be read 
with regret by expectant legatees : 

" A gentleman who had been dining, 'not wisely, but too well,' in the 
course of the evening drew a check for a large amount, and, having signed 
it, poked it, by means of a stick, into a box placed at the gates of a char- 
itable institution to receive the donations of passers-by. When he 
regained his sobriety the next morning, he remembered with horror his 
liberality of the previous night, and addressed a moving appeal to the 
Managers of the institution in question to restore the amount of the check, 
which he found had been cashed before he had time to dress himself or 
drink one bottle of soda-water. As it was found that the unfortunate man 
had absolutely left himself penniless, the Managers, it is believed, kindly 
allowed him a small sum, to carry him on till the. next quarter ; but the 
shock was too much for him, and, after a few days of intense mental 
agony, he fell into a state of total abstinence, from which he never rallied." 

Disputes between Heirs-at-Law and Charities are very common, and 
the cases above noticed are sufficient for the purpose of showing that 
Heirs-at-Law and Ifext of Kin not unfrequently take the benefit of a

AMONG- things not generally known is the fact that there annually 
lapses to the Government a very large sum from Unclaimed Divi- 
dends, presumably by reason of the representatives of the original Stock- 
holders not being known to the Bank of England authorities. 

A recent Parliamentary Paper shows that on January 4, 1882, the' 
Dividends due and not demanded amounted to £818,909 13s. 6d., of 
■which sum there was advanced to the Government £756,739 Os. 9d. 
The sums thus advanced to the Government are applied pursuant tO' 
the provisions of certain Acts of Parliament towards the reduction of the 
National Debt. 

Too much publicity cannot be given to the fact that these Unclaimed 
Dividends belong to the representatives of deceased Stockholders; they 
only await legitimate claimants proving their title as such representatives, 
prior to being re-transferred from the Commissioners for the reduction of 
the National Debt. 

In 1870, an Act was passed vrith the short title of the National Debt 
Act, which consolidated, -with amendments, certain eaactments relating to 
the National Debt. The provisions with reference to Unclaimed Dividends 
are collected together in Part VIII. of the Act. They are so important to 
the public, and the terms thereof so httle known, that it may be useful to 
state their efEect fully. 

Section 51 provides that all Stock, no dividend whereon is claimed for 
ten years shall be transferred in the books of the Bank of Eng- 
land to the National Debt Commissioners. 

Section 53 provides that, immediately after every such transfer, the 

following particulars shall be entered in a list to be kept by the Bank : (1) 

The name in which the Stock stood immediately before the transfer ; (2) 
The residence and description of the parties ; (3) The amount transferred ; 
and (4) The date of the transfer ; such lists to be open for inspection at 
the usual hours of transfer ; duplicates of each^list to be kept at the oflBce 
of the National Debt Commissioners. 

Section 53 relates to the mode of transfer, which is to be deemed as 
efEectual to all intents as if signed by the person in whose name the Stock 
then stands. 

Section 54 deals with subsequent Dividends. It provides that where 

*See page 8 for rate of fees for searching the Bank recordB for TTnclaimed Depoeite. 



Stock is transferred, all Dividends accruing thereon after the transfer 
shall be paid to the National Debt Commissioners, and shall be from time- 
to time invested by them in the purchase of other Uke Stock, to be placed to- 
their account of Unclaimed Dividends. All such Dividends, and the Stock 
arising from the public investment thereof, shall be held by those Com- 
missioners, subject to the claims of the parties entitled thereto. 

Section 55 relates to re-transfer and payment to persons showing title. 
It is in substance as follows: — Re-transfer may be made to any person 
showing his right thereto. In case the authorities are dissatisfied with the 
claimant's title, he may by petition, in a summary way, state and verify 
his claim to the Court of Chancery and the Court may make such Order 
thereon, touching the Stock, Dividends, and costs of application, as to the 
Court seems just. 

Section 56 provides that three months' notice must be given before 
re-transfer or payment, where the Stock or Dividends claimed exceed £20. 
Section 57 provides that Advertisements as to the re-transfer shall be- 
inserted in one or more newspapers circulating in London and elsewhere. 
Where any such Advertisement is ordered by the Court of Chancery, it iss 
to state the purport of the Order. 

Section 58 provides that at any time before re-transfer of Stockier pay- 
ment of dividend to a claimant, application may be made to the Court of 
Chancery to rescind or vary any Order made for re-transfer or payment- 

Section 59. — It may be desirable to give this Section in extenso, as it: 
relates to cases vrhere a second claimant appears : — 

" Where any stock or dividends having been re-transferred or paid as 
aforesaid to a claimant by either Bank is or are afterwards claimed by 
another person, the Bank and their officers shall not be responsible for ths' 
same to such other claimant, but he may have recourse against the person 
to whom the re-transfer or payment was made." 

Section 60. This contains a Very important proviso as to second 
claimants : — 

" Provided that if in any case a new claimant establishes his title to any 
Stock or Dividends re-transferred or paid to a former claimant, and is 
unable to obtain transfer or payment thereof from the former claimant, 
the Court of Chancery shall, on application by petition by the new claim- 
ant, verified as the Court requires, order the National Debt Commissioners 
to transfer to him any such sum in Stock, and to pay to him such sum in 
money or Dividend as the Court thinks just." 

This is good news for persons who have been defrauded by reason of 
a" fictitious claim having been made to Stock and Dividends justly their 
own. Such cases are unfortunately not without precedent. 

Section 61 relates to payment of Unclaimed Dividends to the National 
Debt Commissioners. 

Section 62 relates to Unclaimed Stock, consisting of Stock Certificates 
and Unclaimed Coupons. These are dealt with in a similar manner as 
nearly as may be to Unclaimed Stock and Dividends thereon. 

Section 63 enables the Treasury to empower the Bank of England 
or of Ireland to investigate the circumstances of any Stock or Dividends 
remaining unclaimed, with a view tO' ascertain the owners thereof, and 
allow to them such compensation for their trouble and expenses as to the; 
Treasury seems just. 

Section 66 grants indemnity to,' tha Banks ol England and Ireland. 


and their officers m respect of such re-transfers as aforesaid ; they are to 
be in no way responsible to any person having or claiming any interest in 
such Stocks and Dividends. 

From a careful perusal of the foregoing provisions, it vrould appear 
that the Legislature has provided proper means for dealing with Unclaimed 
Dividends of the Bank of England, — First, by applying them towards the 
reduction of the National Debt, and secondly, for re-transfer from the Com- 
missioners to persons entitled thereto on proper proofs of identity being 
produced to the authorities. 

I am often asked why Dividends continue to remain Unclaimed year 
after year, and my answer is, that in many cases (owing to the lapse of time 
and other reasons) it is very difficult to trace the legal personal represent- 
atives of the original Stockholders, and the State will, therefore, always 
have a large annual "windfall." Many years ago the Bank of England 
authorities published Lists containing the names and descriptions of Stock- 
holders entitled to Unclaimed Dividends, and the public were largely bene- 
fited thereby ; but it was stated that such publicaiion offered f acihties for 
fraud, hence their discontinuance. It seems rather hard that the majority 
of persons interested in these funds should suffer for the delinquencies of 
a few black sheep, and it is utterly impossible to believe that the Bank of 
England Solicitors (to whom, doubtless, any questionable claim would be 
referred) could be deceived in many cases. 

The means adopted by the Bank authorities for endeavoring to find 
claimants in the present day are, I believe, of a very limited character ; 
they address a communication to the parties supposed to be interested, 
acquainting them that their names appear on the Bank books, and that, 
if they will take measures to establish any claim they may have, all proper 
assistance will be afforded them. As 1 have stated above, it is almost 
iriipossible, in many cases, for the Bank authorities to trace the persons 
really interested, and the fact of large sums being annually applied towards 
the reduction of the National Debt, arising from Unclaimed Dividends, 
would seem to show that more publicity is necessary in the interests of 
Heirs-at-Law and Next of Kin. Many thousands of persons are more or 
less interested in these dividends, (the Stockholders number nearly 350,000), 
and the more accessible Lists like those above referred to are made, the 
more chance would there be of the grand total of Unclaimed Dividends 
being reduced. 

A specimen of an Advertisement issued by the Bank of England with 
reference to Unclaimed Dividends is subjoined : — 

"Bank OF England. — Unclaimed Dividends? — Applications having 
been made to the Governors of the Bank of England to direct the payment 
of Two Dividends on the sum of £10,500 Consolidated £3 per cent, annui- 
ties, heretofore standing in the name of .... deceased, and which Divi- 
dends were paid over to the Commissioners for the Eeduction of the National 
Debt, in consequence of the first thereof having remained unclaimed since 
■ • • • Notice is Hereby Given, that, on the expiration of three months 
from this date, the said Dividends will be paid to ... . one of the Execu- 
tors of .... deceased, who has claimed the same unless some other claim- 
ant shall sooner appear and make out his claim thereto." 

A remarkable case came before the late Vioe-Chancellor Malins, in 
which it appeared that a lady died at Marseilles at the great age of ninety- 
eight, who, though entitled to £56,000 in the Funds, and to more than 
£30,000 accumulated dividends, was constantly borrowing money from her 


relatives ; from which fact, it may be inferred, that this large deposit had 
escaped the aged lady's memory. 

The following are extracted from Lists of Unclaimed Dividends pub- 
lished by the Bank of England. The numbers after the dates denote the 
nuniiber of Dividends due when the Unclaimed Dividends were transferred 
to the Commissioners, for the Reduction of the National Debt.

In addition to Unclaimed Dividends, the Bank of England, doubtless^ 
has large sums in the shape of Unclaimed Deposits. It is also custodian 
of boxes deposited in its cellars for safe custody. It is a pity that these 
boxes are not overhauled after the lapse of a certain number of years, and 
their contents advertised. It has occasionally oozed out that many of 
these consignments are not only of rare intrinsic and historical value, but 
of great romantic interest. For instance, some years ago the servant? of 
the Bank of England discovered in its vaults a chest, which, on being 
moved, literally fell to pieces. On examining the contents a quantity of 
massive plate, of the period of Charles II., was discovered, along with a 
bundle of old love-letters indited during the period of the Restoration. 
The Directors of the Bank caused search to be made in their books, — the 
representative of the original depositor of the box was discovered, and the 
plate and love-letters handed over. — Prestoris Unclaimed Money. 

The following clipped from a newspaper of Hartford, Connecticut, of 
date of December, 1883, shows that unclaimed dividends and deposits are 
not a thing peculiar to the Baiik of England : 

" Returns received by the State Controller to this date show that 
* there are in the several savings-banks deposits unclaimed for twenty years 
aggregating $69,000, and it is estimated that further reports to be received 
will bring the aggregate up to nearly $100,000. There are 705 depositors, 
averaging $98 each, whose accounts have not been disturbed for the 
period named or longer, and whose whereabouts are unknown to the 
officials of the banks. In Connecticut this unclaimed property does not 
escheat to the State, and the bank managers have earnestly fought every 
proposition for thus disposing of it or looking to such publicity regarding 
the individual deposits as would tend to enlighten heirs or others. News- 
paper publication of the list was defeated before the Legislature, and the 
original bill was so emasculated that, as passed, it calls only for an annual 
statement of the names of and amounts due depositors, to be filed with the 
State Controller. Such a list gives next to nothing in the way of informa- 
tion, and when filed in a public office and not published in any form it is 

'The Legislature will be asked next month to change all this, and to 
require that the banks give the last known residence and all other inf orma- 


tion in their possession regarding depositors. One single bank — the Society 
for Savings — in this city holds $53,000 of unclaimed deposits due 570 
depositors, one having $3,964 to his credit and four others over $1,000 
each. The New Haven Bank has seventy-five depositors who have not 
disturbed their deposits for twenty years or more, and several other banks 
from four to thirty each. It is a somewhat remarkable fact that the banks 
in the seaport towns, which might be supposed to have a considerable 
number of depositors lost at sea, make a comparatively small showing as 
contrasted with banks on inland towns and cities. The smallest unclaimed 
deposit in .any bank is 53' cents, due one Jixlia Ennis, who, twenty years 
ago or more, did not think it worth while to draw some odd pennies of her 
deposit. There is but one other missing depositor reported by that bank 
in Southport, and against Julia Ennis's 52 cents, he has $711.11 to hia 

For the lovers of the curious we append the following singular co-in- 
cidence in relation to bank notes : 

" On one occasion the Bank of England proved much too accommo- 
dating for its own interests. Somewhere about the year 1840 one of its 
own Directors, a man of wealth and of unimpeachable honor, bought an 
estate for £30,000, and for convenience sake obtained a note for that 
amount. On returning home, just as he was about to put it under lock 
and key, he was called out of the room, and placed the note on the mantel- 
piece. On coming back, a few minutes later, no note was to be seen. No 
one had entered the room in his absence, and, after an anxious search, he 
came to the conclusion that the precious bit of paper had fallen into the 
fire and been consumed. Hurrying off to Threadneedle Street he told his 
colleagues what had happened, and they gave him a second note upon his 
undertaking to restore the lost one if it should come again into his hands, 
and, in case of its being presented by anybody else, repay the amount to 
the bank. 

Thirty years afterward, when he had long been dead and his estate 
distributed among his heirs, the supposed non-existent note turned up at 
the bank counter, where it was presented for payment. All explanation 
of the circumstances connected with it were lost upon the presentee — the 
note had come to him from abroad in the course of business, and it must 
be honored without delay. There being no help for it, he was paid the 
£30,000. Application was made to the representatives of the defunct 
Director to refund the money, but they promptly disclaimed their liability, 
and the bank perforce had to put up with the loss. The story goes that 
it was discovered (how or when we are not informed) that the builder em- 
ployed to pull down the dead man's house, preparatory to rearing a new 
one on the site, had found the note in a crevice of the chimney, and kept- 
it and, his own counsel until he thought it was safe to reap the reward of 
his patience and unscrupulousness, and so became a rich man at a stroke. 

The executors of Sir Robert Burdett found no less than £370,000 
worth of bank notes scattered here and there about his house, some 
slipped into bundles of old papers, some between the leaves of books, with- 
out a memorandum anywhere to apprise them of the existence of such 
valuables, much less of their whereabouts. A little better advised were 
the executors of the gentleman wh» left behind him a scrap of paper 
marked " Seven hundred pounds in Till," although they failed to inter- 
pret its meaning until they had disposed of all the dead man's belong- 
mgs. When one of them recollected that his; library had contained a- 


folio edition of Tillotson's Sermons, and wondered if "Till" had any ref- 
erence to it The hooks had been sold to a bookseller, who luckily had 
not found a customer for them, although he had sent them on approval to 
a geutleman* at Cambridge, who had returned them as not answering 
his expectations. The executor bought the Tillotson back again, and 
going carefully through the Tolume, recovered notes to the amount of 


The watchman of a factory at New Haven, Conn., afforded the ad- 
ministrators of his estate no clew whatever as to the hiding-place of the 
savings, of which they believed him to have died possessed. Overhauhng 
his clothes preparatory to selling them by auction, one of them threw 
an old overcoat aside, when a dirty piece of cloth dropped out of one 
of the pockets. On examination this was found to be wrapped around 
a large cartridge shell, within which lay notes of $1,800 value, which, 
but for a mere chance, might unexpectedly have enriched a purchaser 
of second-hand clothing. 

Some sixty years since a Bank of England £5 note was paid iuto a 
Liverpool merchant's office in the ordinary course of business. On 
holding it up to the light to test its genuineness the Cashier saw some 
faint red marks upon it. Examining them closely, he traced some half- 
effaced words between the printed lines and upon the margin of the 
note, written apparently in blood. After a long and minute scrutiny 
he made out the words: "If this note should fall into the hands of 
John Dean, of Longhill, near Carlisle, he will learn hereby that his 
brother is languishing a prisoner in Algiers." The merchant immedi- 
ately communicated with Mr. Dean, and he lost no time in bringing the 
matter before the Government. Inquiries were set on foot, and the 
unfortunate man discovered and ransomed. He had been a slave to the 
Dey of Algiers for eleven years when the message he had traced with 
a splinter of wood dipped in his own blood reached the Liverpool 
counting-house. Liberty, however, came too late; the privations and 
hardships of the galleys had sapped his strength, and, although he was 
brought home to England, it was but to die. 



BEFORE quoting statistics concerning Unclaimed Dividends in Bank- 
ruptcy, it may not be out of place here to give a few extracts from the 
Bankruptcy Laws of the olden time. One of the earlier statutes prescribes 
the following penalty for the fraudulent conveying away of goods : — " If, 
on indictment, k bankrupt shall be convicted, he or she so convicted shall 
be set in the pillory in some public place for the space of two hours, and 
one of his or her ears nailed to the pillory and cut off." Persons fraud- 
ulently claiming the estate of a bankrupt were thus dealt with : — 

" If at any time before or after a person becomes a bankrupt, any per- 
sons do fraudulently, or by collusion, claim, demand, recover, possess, or 
detain any debts, duties, goods, chattels, lands, or tenements, by writing, 
triist or otherwise, which were or shall be due, belonging, or appertaining 
to any such offender, other than such as he or they can and do prove to be 

due by right and conscience every such person shall forfeit and 

lose double as much as he or they shall so claim." After the creditors were 
satisfied, forfeitures were disposed of thus : — "One moiety to the Commis- 
sioners of Bankrupts to be paid unto the Queen's Majesty, Her Heirs and 
Successors, and the other moiety thereof .... employed and distributed 
to, and amongst the poor within the hospitals in every city, town, or 
county where any such bankrupt shall happen to be." The disposal of 
one moiety of these forfeitures amongst the poor in hospitals no one 
would be disposed to cavil at — why the other moiety should go to the 
Queen's Majesty is not so clear. 

As recently as the year 1761, a person named Parrott was executed at 
Smithfield for fraudulently concealing the true state of his affairs from 
his creditors. 

A few years later on (in 1772) a noted firm of bankers stopped pay- 
ment. The event is thus dilated on in the newspapers of the day : — 

"It is almost impossible to describe the general consternation in the 
Metropolis at this instant. No event for 50 years past has been remem- 
bered to have given so fatal a blow both to trade and public credit ; an 
universal bankruptcy was expected ; the stoppage of almost every banking 
house in London was looked for ; the whole city was in an uproar ; many 
of the best families in tears .... caused by the rumor that one of the 
greatest bankers in London had stopped payment, which afterwards 

proved true The principal merchants assembled, and means were 

immediately concerted to revive trade and restore the national credit." 

Considering the distress the failure of a large firm causes, who can wonder 
at the penalties being so severe, in days gone by, for fraudulent bankruptcy ? 



In the year 1876 an Act had to be obtained arising out of the winding- 
up of the Western Bank of Scotland. That bank stopped payment in 1857, 
with liabilities amounting to nearly nine millions, and after the lapse of 
twenty years the fund, in the shape of Unclaimed Dividends, etc., remain, 
ing to be dealt with was £10,368. In the Liquidators' balance-sheet it is 
curious to note the alarming difference between nominal and estimated 
assets, thus : — Credits and overdrawn accounts, etc., set down in the Com- 
pany's books at £^,800,000, or thereabouts, are estimated to reahze the in- 
significant sum of £439 18s. 3d. 

A still more gigantic liquidation than that of the Western Bank of 
Scotland was that of the City of Glasgow Bank, which failed in 1878, and 
caused wide-spread ruin and misery. The habilities were about £14,400, 
000. with very small available assets. Two calls were made, one of £500, 
the other of £2,250, in respect of each £100 of stock. These enormous 
calls enabled the Liquidators to pay off the great bulk of the liabilities, 
and in 1882 an Act was passed transferring the remaining assets and lia- 
bilities to the " Assets Company." The balance-sheet showed that no less 
than £260,000 in the shape of interest could be claimed by creditors, and 
that no claims had been lodged in respect of £54,143 17s. 7d. The 
names of the persons entitled to these large sums have never been 

Acts of Parliament with reference to Bankruptcy have from time to 
time been passed, but, Judging from correspondence in the newspapers, 
they have failed to give entire satisfaction to the public. A Memorial pre- 
sented to Earl Cairns, when Lord Chancellor, contains some striking de- 
tails concerning Unclaimed Dividends in Bankruptcy, of which, the follow- 
ing is a summary : — 

In 1864 the Chief Kegistrar of the Bankruptcy Court stated before a 
Select Committee of the House of Commons that there was a fund called 
the "Unclaimed Dividend Account," producing £45,000 a year; that 
under the Trust Deed Clauses of the Act of 1861, and also under certain 
sections of the Act of 1869, very large sums had been received by trustees, 
none of whom were liable to any official supervision, or even rendered, as 
far as could be discovered, any amount of Unclaimed Dividends or undi- 
vided surplus to any person whatever. The value of bankrupts' estates 
and of estates administered under trust deeds during the period between 
1864 and 1876 was £68,817,221 10s. 

The Memorial proceeds : — " It will be seen that under Bankrupts' 
estates more than 30 per cent of the assets remain undivided at the end of 
the year, and that nearly £22,000 per annum has been paid to the Consol- 
idated Fund from Unclaimed Dividends. The estates under liquidations 
and compositions are more than four times the value of bankrupt estates, 
and must therefore yield at the least nearly £90,000 a year in Unclaimed 
Dividends ; . . . . also unemployed balances of at least a million and a 
half. Innumerable cases have been brought under my notice in which 
creditors under petitions for liquidation, which have been filed for months, 
have neither been able to get any dividend nor any information whatever 
respecting their debtors' estate, until, wearied by unavailing efforts, they 
have retired in hopeless disgust." 

The foregoing probably in some degree accounts for the enormous 
sums lying idle in the shape of Unclaimed Dividends. 

In 1877 the Secretary to the Mercantile Law Amendment Society 
wrote a long letter to the Times, which was characterized by the leading 


journal as an important and interesting document. We extract from it 
the following: — 

" The figures to which I am now about to refer are so important that 
I trust they will be carefully considered. I yenture to think they deserve 
the special consideration of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. It appears 
from the Comptroller's Eeturn that on 31st December last, there remained 
in the hands of trustees under Bankrupts' estates, undistributed assets 
amounting to £441,364 2s. lOd., and that in the Bank of' England there 
was a sum of £10,784 18s. 5d., being Unclaimed Dividends remaining 
after the close of bankruptcies .... immense sums of money in these 
cases must remain in the hands of trustees in the form of Unclaimed 
Dividends. Why should the Unclaimed Dividends be kept by these ad- 
venturers? .... Between 1862 and 1871 the gross value of the estates 
dealt with under the Bankruptcy Acts, 1861 and 1869, amounted to the 
immense sum of £74,564,326 All Unclaimed Dividends and undi- 
vided surpluses have been kept by the trustees It would be very 

diificult to estimate with accuracy the actual amount of Unclaimed Divi- 
dends now in the hands of trustees, but there can be no doubt that there 
is at least seven or eight millions of money." 

Some persons may possibly desire to be enlightened as to the prospect 
of obtaining their share of the funds referred to. The following section 
from the Bankruptcy Act of 1869 shows that Unclaimed Dividends may 
be recovered at any time, on proper reasons being given for the delay in 
sending in claims : — 

"116. Where any dividends remain unclaimed for five years, then 
and in every such case the same shall be deemed vested in the Crown, and 
shall be disposed of as the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury 
direct : Provided that at any time after such vesting the Lord Chancellor 
or any Court authorized by him may by reason of the disability or absence 
beyond seas of the person entitled to the sum so vested, or for any other 
reason appearing to him sufficient, direct that the said sum shall be 
repaid out of money provided by parliament." 

A perusal of the foregoing facts will probably be sufficient to show 
what an important unit in the fabulous sums of money awaiting claimants 
are Unclaimed Dividends in Bankruptcy. 

There appeared in the Times, some years ago, a letter from " An Ex- 
ecutor," complaining bitterly of the delay in distributing Dividends ; in 
this case the published correspondence showed that £900 had quite escaped 
notice for upwards of ten years, and the editor of the City article of the 
Times, when commenting on the case, said : — " Were a Parliamentary Ee- 
turn of the residues of estates in the hands of trustees in Bankruptcy to 
be ordered, people would be startled at the totals it would reveal." ^ 

Various attempts have been made by successive Governments to 
amend the law of Bankruptcy. Most of the Bills have contained a clause 
providing for the transfer to the Crown of all Undistributed Assets and 
Unclaimed dividends (estimated by the Comptroller at about £5,000,000). 
Before such transfer takes place the names and addresses of the creditors 
entitled, with the amounts divisible, should be published in the leading 
newspapers, so that they or their representatives may have a fair chance 
of making good their claims. By omitting sums under £5 as not worth 
the expense of recovery, the cost of advertising would be defrayed. — Pres- 
torCs Unclaimed Money. 

We have had no opportunity of searching Eecords to ascertain even 



the approximate Amount of Unclaimed Dividends in Bankruptcy in the 
Courts of the United States, but we know that in the aggregate the 
amount is very large. Not in large sums to any one creditor, but in a 
multitude of small ones. The creditor of any Bankrupt having even a 
suspicion that a dividend may be remaining unclaimed, to his credit, 
would do well to inform this BUREAU of the fact, and have an investiga- 
tioa, aa it will cost but a trifle. 



THEEE is every reason to believe that the hoards of money and other 
valuables one so often reads of as having been discovered by workmen 
while engaged in pulling down old houses, have been secreted by Misers ; 
the result is that, in many cases, property thus found is taken possession 
of by persons whom the Misers never intended to benefit — namely, their 
Heirs-at-Law and Next of Kin. 

It is pretty certain that misers of both sexes existed ages ago, as they 
do in our own day, and the following notes concerning some notable 
examples of this class of monomaniacs may not be uninteresting. Of these 
who made it a rule of their lives to — " Gather gear by every wile," the case 
of M. Osterwald, who died at Paris in 1791, is remarkble, as showing that 
the richest man in a city may also be the most miserable one. He was the 
Son of a poor minister, and began life as a clerk in a banking-house, at 
Hamburg, where he acquired a small sum, which he augmented by hi® 
speculations in business and his economical mode of living ; he afterwards 
came to Paris, where he accumulated his enormous fortune. He was a, 
bach'elor-^the expenses of a wife and children being incompatible with hfe 
frugal mode of living. He had for a servant, a poor wretch, whom he never 
permitted to enter his apartment ; he had always promised that at his death 
he should be handsomely recompensed, and accordingly he left him a pit- 
tance of six months' wages and a suit of clothes, but, as he expressly statei, 
"not the most new." A few days before his death some of his acquaint- 
ances, who saw that he was reduced to the last extremity by want of nour- 
ishment, proposed to him to have some soup. "Yes, yes," he replied, "it, 
is easy to talk of soup— but what is to become of the meat ?" Thus died 
one who was reported to be the richest man in Paris, more from want of 
care and proper nourishment than from disease. He is stated to have left 
to relations, whom he had probably .never seen, the sum of three millions, 
sterling. Under his bolster were found eight hundred thousand livres in 
paper money. 

A miser died in Paris in 1880, leaving property supposed to be worth 
about £60. Some time elapsed before the heir presented himself, but on 
his doing so, a search was made in the miser's apartment, and no less a sum 
than £32,000 was discovered in a cupboard. 

The cases of these French misers strikingly illustrate the truth of the

To heirs unknown descends the unguarded store, 
Or wanders heaven-directed to the poor. 


In a recent case, — that of William Rhodes, known as the Hounslow 
miser, — two charities benefited largely by the miser's hoards. He was 
worth nearly £80,000, all of which he left to the Royal Free H6spital and 
the lifeboat Institution. The miser's nephews and nieces tried to upset the. 
will, but it was upheld, the two charities consenting to pay 1,000 guineas; 
to the Next of Kin. It is said that this miser commenced his savings by 
picking up cigar -ends and other unconsidered trifles. His household effects 
fetched £5 17s. 

A still more extraordinary case is that of an English lady, who died 
in 1766, in a lodging-house near the Broadway, in Deptford, at the age of 
96. Her name was Mary Luhorne. For upwards of forty years sh& 
lived in Greenwich and Deptford in the most penurious manner, denying^ 
herself the common necessaries of life. She was known not to have had any 
fire or candle in her apartment for fourteen years prior to her death. She fre- 
quently begged on the high roads when she went on business to the city.. 
Notwithstanding her wretched way of life, after her death there were found, 
securities in the Bank, South Sea, East India, and other Stocks to the- 
amount of £40,000 and upwards, besides jewels and other precious stones^ 
plate, china, clothes of every kind of the richest sort, great quantities of 
the finest silks, linen, velvets, etc., unmade of very great value, besides. 
a large sum of money. To whom all this treasure reverted does not 
appear ; it is to be hoped the miser's Next of Kin came in for a share of it. 

The neighborhood where Mary Luhorne died seems to be still famous. 
for its misers. In 1877 there died at Woolwich a Mr. John Clark, aged 
eighty-six. He is described as having been a man of education, but a very- 
singular character ; although reputed as immensely wealthy, he was very 
miserly in his habits, and lived to the last in a squalid hovel in the poorest, 
part of Woolwich ; the greater pprtion of his life was spent in the accumu- 
lation of books, of which he left a large store. It was reported that the 
front shutters of his house had not been opened for over thirty years ; he 
never took a regular meal, nor did he know the taste of wines or spirits. 
Yet, notwithstanding that he lived in such a den and suffered such priva- 
tions, he reached an octogenarian age, and died worth £40,000, or there- 
abouts. This bookworm, as well as miser, seems to have been a strange- 
combination of avarice and liberality ; for by his will he left no less than. 
£6,000 to his doctor, also £5,000 to his housekeeper, besides many legacies 
to local charities, and to a number of the poor neighbors by whom he wa& 
surrounded. Knowing well he could not take his wealth with him, h& 
appears to have tried to make some reparation for a wasted life by dis- 
posing of his treasures with a liberal hand. What his Next of Kin said 
about the legacy of £6,000 to the doctor is not recorded. Bequests of this 
nature are a prolific source of litigation. 

An instance of miserly habits in the great and pioble is to be found! 
in the case of that renowned captain, the Duke of Marlborough, of whom 
it is chronicled that, when in the last stage of life and very infirm, he- 
would walk from the public room in Bath to his lodgings, on a cqld, dark 
night, to save sixpence in chair hire. He died worth £1,500,000. 

It is recorded of a Sir James Lowther that, after changing a piece of 
silver in George's Coffee-house, and paying twopence for his dish of coffee,, 
he was helped into his chariot (he was then very lame and infirm), and went 
home. Some time after, he returned to the same coffee-house on purpose 
to acquaint the woman who kept it that she had given him a bad half- 
penny, and demanded another in exchange for it. Sir James is stated ta 


have then had about £40,000 per annum coming in, and was at a loss 
whom to appoint his heir. 

Sir Thomas Colby, an official high in office, shortened his existence by 
his passion for this world's goods, as appears by the following anecdote: — 
" He rose in the middle of the night, when he was in a very profuse per- 
■spiration, and walked down stairs to look for the key of his cellar, which 
he had inadvertently left on a table in the parlor ; he was apprehensive 
that his servants might seize the key and rob him of a bottle of port wine, 
instead of which he himself was seized with a chill, and died intestate, 
leaving over £300,000 in the funds, which was shared by five or six 
•day-laborers, who were his Next of Kin." Marvelous good luck for his 
poor relations ! 

Sir William Smyth, of Bedfordshire, when nearly seventy years of 
age, was wholly deprived of sight ; he was persuaded to be couched by a 
•celebrated oculist, who, by agreement, was to have sixty guineas if he 
restored his patient to any degree of sight. The oculist succeeded in his 
operation, and Sir William was able to read and write without ,the use of 
■spectacles, during the rest of his life ; but as soon as Sir William perceived 
the good effects of the oculist's skill, instead of being overjoyed, as any 
•other grateful person would have been, he began to lament the loss (as he 
•called it) of his sixty guineas. His contrivance, therefore, now was how to 
cheat the oculist. He pretended that he had only a glimmering, and 
oould see nothing perfectly. For that reason the bandage on his 
■eyes was continued a month longer than the usual time. By this means 
he obliged the oculist to compound the bargain, and accept of twenty guineas. 

A covetous man thinks no artifice too mean which he may legally 
practice to save his money. The miserly knight was an old bachelor, and 
at the time the oculist couched him is reported to have had a fair estate, 
■a large sum of money in the Stocks, and not less than £5,000 in his house ! 
Dr. King, in Anecdotes of His Oion Times, makes the following observation 
•when quoting Sir Wilham Smyth's case: — "If you could bestow on a man 
■of this disposition the wealth of both the Indies, he would not have 
-•enough, because by enough (if such a word is to be found in the vocabu- 
lary of avarice), he always means something more than he is pos- 
«essed of." 

The following is an instance (by no means an isolated one) of good 
fortune accruing to N"ext of Kin by a miser dying intestate : 

At Northfleet there died, in 1772, a Mr. Page, dealer in limestones 
■and gun-flints, by which occupation, and by a most penurious way of liv- 
ing, he had accumulated a fortune of some £12.000. He lived alone, in a 
large house, for several years, no one coming near him but an old woman 
in the village, who, once a day, went to make his bed. His death was 
occasioned by his running a knife into the palm of his hand while opening 
an oyster. The wound inflamed, and at length mortified. Though 
repeatedly requested to apply to a surgeon, he refused, saying, " All of that 
profession were rogues, and would make a job of his misfortune." From 
his having died without a will, his money went to a relative in very embar- 
rassed circumstances. During the latter years of his life, the miser would 
never suffer this poor relative to come to his house, and never gave him 
the smallest assistance. 

Some years since, a chiffonnier (or rag and r,efuse gatherer) died 
intestate in France, having literally " scraped " together 400,000 francs, the 
whole of which went to the Heir-at-Law. 


In another case, the body of an old man named Partridge, a rag and 
l)one collector, was discovered on a heap of filth in a room in one of the 
iDack streets of Exeter. The deceased was in the habit of prowling about 
the city, collecting bones and garbage, and he had been seen to eat morsels 
•of food picked up by him in the streets. He lived alone, in a room which 
was filled with rags, filth, and vermin. He had complained of illness a 
few days before his death, and had, marvelous to I'elate, resorted to -intox- 
icating liquors as an antidote, of which he drank freely. After his death, 
a savings-bank book was found, from which it appeared he had a large 
csum of money in the bank, and had also lent £15 to his landlady, besides 
various sums of money to other persons. His death was, without doubt, 
oaused by self-neglect, dirty habits, and insufficiency of food. By his 
"dying without a will, a nice little windfall reverted to his Next of Kin. 

Some years ago, there died at Surrey Hills, Sydney, an old lady, 
named Soliff, who was a native of England, and lived alone. None of her 
neighbors ever knew her to leave her house .... she was very penurious 
.... never lit a fire .... lived a life of rigid seclusion froin choice, 

though she possessed a large income from house property In her 

last illness, one of her latest injunctions to those around her was to " look 
after a few pence on the mantel-piece." .... She left nothing whatever 
to her relations in Australia, but everything to her Next of Kin in 
England. After her death, three bags of money were found, containing 
^1,100 in gold and silver .... a deposit note for £6,000 .... deeds 
relating to house property, and about eighty dresses of rare colors and 

great beauty, also rare and costly furs It is said her husband was 

transported for stealing a bag of flour She followed him, and got 

him signed to her The husband died many years ago. — Preston's

IF a testament be made in writing and afterwards lost, two unexcep- 
tional witnesses who saw and read the document and remembered the 
contents thereof, may, on deposing to the tenour of the Will, afford suf- 
ficient proof of its having been executed ; and in such cases probate is 
usually granted according to the deposition of the witnesses. It is quite 
clear, according to the text- books, that the contents or substance of a tes- 
tamentary instrument may be established in this way, though the instru- 
ment itself cannot be produced, upon satisfactory proof being given that 
the instrument was duly made by the testator, and was not revoked by 
hini. For example, by showing that the instrument existed after the tes- 
tator's death, or that it was destroyed in his lifetime without his privity or 
consent. Thus, where a testator had delivered his Will to a friend to take 
charge of for him, and died some years afterwards, the Will was found torn 
to pieces by rats, and in part illegible ; on proof of the substance of the 
Will by the joining of the torn pieces, and by the aid of the memory of 
the witnesses, probate was granted. 

In a case where, after iAie death of the testator, his Will and Codicil 
were, it was alleged, wrongfully torn by his eldest son, the Court having, 
by means of some pieces which were saved and by oral evidence, arrived 
at the substance of the instrumeats, admitted their validity. But where 
allegations of this serious nature are made they must be supported by the 
clearest evidence. 

In another case, where a Codicil has been burned by order of the tes- 
tator, but not in his presence, as required by the statute, probate was 
granted on a draft copy. This case shows the necessity of having a. 
solicitor at one's elbow, not only when making our testamentary disposi- 
tions, but also when destroying them, so that the destruction may be done 
in a legalized way. 

Where a Will is duly executed, but afterwards destroyed in the life- 
time of the testator without his authority, it may be established on satis- 
factory proof being given of its contents, and of it having been so de- 
stroyed. The law is the same where a wife, having power to dispose of 
property by her Will, makes her Will and afterwards destroys it by the com- 
pulsion of her husband. 

The law as to suppressing or destroying Wills is clearly shown by the 

following case : "A person after the death of a testator possessed himself 

' of the Will, and suppressed or destroyed it. On these facts being proven 

to the satisfaction of the Court, letters of adm-inistration were granted 

with the Will annexed to the residuary legatee." A case of this kind was 

WILLS. 93 

tried in Ireland some seventy-five years ago. The following' is from the 
newspaper report of the trial : 

" A most extraordinary case was tried at the last Maryborough Assizes. 
The facts were these : Kobert Baldwin, in March, 1783, made his will, by 
which he devised the lands in question to the children of his youngest son. 
Soon after, his faculties failed him ; he became altogether childish, and 
died in April, 1784, aged 80 or thereabouts. The defendant, testator's 
eldest son, immediately gave out that his father had destroyed the will, 
and, no will being found, he entered into possession of the estate, and so 
matters remained for twenty-one years, the whole family, during all that 
time, believing that their father had died without a will. But, after 
twenty-one years, the delusion vanished, and the defendant's own children 
became the immediate instruments of justice to the children of his 
brother. In 1802 the defendant's wife died, and he soon afterwards, at 
the age of 78, married a very young woman, which caused some anxiety 
to his two sons, Robert and Edwin, whose poignant expressions of regret 
so exasperated their father that he, in his resentment, executed his will to 
disinherit his eldest son, Robert, and, in his fit of anger, showed it to his 
second son, Edwin, who instantly determined to get at it and destroy it, 
in order to preserve the property to his elder brother. With this view he 
broke open his father's desk, where he found, not his father's will which 
he sought, but the will of his grandfather, which was then altogether for- 
gotten' by the family. He read it, and found that the estate of which his 
father would have disinherited his brother, lawfully belonged to his 
cousins, the children of his late uncle John. He immediately communi- 
cated the important discovery to his brother, and he to their uncle Jona- 
than, in consequence of which the will was, about the beginning of the 
year 1805, lodged in the Prerogative Court. When the defendant was 
apprised of the discovery of the will, he said it was very true — his father 
never did cancel h's will, but that he did it away by two deeds, by which 
he afterwards conveyed the property to him, the defendant, and that those 
deeds were both registered. It appeared, indeed, that one such deed had 
been registered since the discovery of the will ; and both deeds appearing 
foully suspicious, a bill was filed in the Court of Exchequer, the cousins 
desiring to have the opinion of a jury on these alleged deeds. After a long 
trial, the jury found a verdict for the plaintiffs, with the full approval of 
the Judge. By this verdict the plaintiffs (five in number) were restored to 
an estate of £300 a year, of which for twenty-five years they had been 
deprived by their uncle." 

Old uncles (especially wealthy ones) are invariably looked up to with 
the profoundest respect by their nieces and nephews, but in this instance 
the confiding nephews appear to have been the victims of misplaced 

A very hard case, namely, an action of ejectment by an eldest son, as 
Heir-at-Law, against his own mother, was tried some twenty-five years ago. 
Such action would never have been commenced but for the loss of a 
carefully-prepared Will. • 

In the case of the goods of Miss Helen Jane Gladstone, who died in 
Germany in 1880, letters of administration had been granted to her 
brothers. Sir Thomas Gladstone and the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone. 
After the issuing of the grant, certain bills of costs were found among 
some loose papers belongmg to the deceased, from which it appeared that 
the lady had made a Will in 1853. Upon further search, the will was 


found. The letters of administration were accordingly reyoked and the 
long-missing Will admitted to probate. 

In another case, the Will of a gentleman who died in Ireland in 
1880, was discoTcred secreted behind a grate in a small back 
room, many months after the Heir-at-Law had taken possession of the 
estate. The discoyery of the Will altered the destination of £40,000; 
instead of the Heir-at-Law being entitled to the whole, the Will showed 
that the testator's nephews and nieces were to share equally. 

Instances are not unknown of bodies having been exhumed for the pur- 
pose of searching for Lost Wills. A case of this sort occurred in 1876. 
The facts were these : — In 1870 a clergyman died near Bedford. After 
his death, rumors were afloat that a Will had been buried with him, which, 
document, if found, would alter the devolution of his estate. The repre- 
sentatives of the deceased memorialized the Home Office, and the Home- 
Secretary ordered the exhumation of the body. The proceedings were con- 
ducted with grave decorum. A bundle of papers was found under the, 
body, tied with red tape, but these are said to have been only old love let- 
ters ; no Will was found. The'village was in a great state of excitement 
during the proceedings, as village gossips would have it that a party of 
hody-snatchershad visited the church-yard. 

Advertisements for lost Wills are, unfortunately, only too common, 
and large rewards are occasionally offered for such missing-documents. In 
the case of the late Lord St. Leonards, the sum so offered was £500.- The: 
noble Lord had made a Will and several Codicils, but on his death the 
Will could nowhere be found. Costly litigation ensued, which resulted in 
probate being granted on a copy of the Will drawn up from memory by 
his Lordship's daughter. This decision was appealed against, but was upheld. 

It should be universally known that the Wills of living persons may 
be deposited in a place of security at Somerset House, on payment of a 
small fee. The enactment on the subject is 20 & 21 Vict., c. 77, s. 91, and 
is as follows: — 

" One or more safe and convenient depository or depositories shall be 
provided, under the control and directions of the Court of Probate, for all 
such Wills of living persons as shall be deposited thefeia for safe custody ; 
and all persons may deposit their Wills in such depository upon payment of 
such fees and under such regulations as the Judge shall from time to time 
by any Order direct." 

In givingiudgment in the case of the Lost Will of Lord St. Leonards,. 
Mr. Justice Hennen drew attention to this Act of Parliament, and 
regretted that the public had not availed themselves of it more exten- 

The following is a specimen of an Advertisement seeking a clue to 
a Lost Will:— 

" £100 Reward.— Will of Stephen Merris Mills, Esq., wanted. He died 
at 25, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, on June 10, 1858. It is believed that 
the Will was placed in a small table in that house, and the table and other 
furniture of the house were sold by auction, by Mr. Dowell, on April 18th, 
1865. The above reward will be paid if the Will be handed over to . . . .'^ 

A little more care on the part of testators as to the safe custody of 
their Wills, would save endless trouble and litigation, not to mention some- 
times life-long family quarrels. 

Extraordinary Will cases have a peculiar fascination to many people 
■who are not in the smallest degree interested in the result from a money 

WILLS. 95 

point of view, but only take an interest tnerein as lovers of the curious.. 
Whimsical Wills have been, and still are, a prolific source of business for 
lawyers, and Heirs-at-Law and Next of Kin are occasionally indirectly bene- 
fited by a whimsical testator's Will being upset. Probably a solicitor ia 
rarely consulted by an intending whimsical testator, from a natural fear 
that a damper might be thrown on his designs. Whimsical bequests have 
sometimes served a very useful purpose, and instances are not unknown of 
such bequests having been made by lawyers themselves. The following is 
a case in point : 

.William J. Haskett, a lawyer, who died in New York City, left a Will 
containing this very curiously worded clause : — 

" I am informed that there is a Society composed of young men con- 
nected with the public press, and, as in early life,. I was connected with 
the papers, I have a keen recollection of the toils and troubles that bubbled 
then and ever will bubble for the toilers of the world in their pottage- 
cauldron, and, as I desire to thicken with a little savory herb, their thm 
broth, in the shape of a legacy, I do hereby bequeath to- the New York Press, 
Club, of the City of New York, 1,000 dollars, payable on the death of Mrs* 

We have a Newspaper Press Fund in London, and any similar legacy 
to that above noted would doubtless be very acceptable. 

There is probably no more profitable class of business to a lawyer than 
that arising out of the disputes about Wills, and the following extract from 
a French Advocate's Will, pithily expresses his opinion of his clients : — 
"I give 100,000 francs to the local madhouse. I got this money out of 
those who pass their hves in litigation ; in bequeathing it for the use of 
lunatics, I only make restitution." 

It is recorded of a rich old farmer that in giving instructions for his 
Will, he directed a legacy of £100 to be given to his wife. Being informed 
that some distinction was usually made in case the widow married again, 
he doubled the sum ; and when told that this was quite contrary to custom, 
he said, with heartfelt sympathy for his possible successor, " Aye, but him as 
gets herll desarve it." 

It is possible for a whimsical testator to be very just, and at the sam& 
time very caustic, as appears by the following extract from the Will of 
John Hylett Stow, proved in 1781 : — 

" I hereby direct my executors to lay out five guineas in the purchase 
of a picture of the Viper biting the benevolent hand of the person who 
saved him from perishing in the snow, if the same can be bought for the 
money ; and that they do, in memory of me, present it to .... a King** 
Counsel, whereby he may have frequent opportunities of contemplating on 
it, and by a comparison between that and his own virtue be able to form 
a certain judgment which is best and most profitable, — a grateful remem- 
brance of pastjfriendship and almost parental regard, or ingratitude and 
insolence. This I direct to be presented to him in lieu of a legacy of £3,. 
000 I had by a former will, now revoked and burnt, left him." 

If the learned Counsel interested happened to be present at the read- 
ing of the Will, his feelings may be well imagined. 

That it is most unwise to make, one's own Will, disputed Probate 
cases abundantly prove. The following verse from an old number ot 
Blackwood's Magazine is appropriate : — 

Testators are good ; but a feeling more tender 
Springs up when I think of the feminine gender j 


The testatrix for me, who, like Telemaque's mother. 
Unweaves at one time what she wove at another. 
She bequeaths, she repents, she recalls a donation. 
And she ends by revoking her own revokation ; 
Still scribbling or scratching some new Codicil, — 
Oh ! success to the woman who makes her own Will. 

Undoubtedly " a crusty old bachelor" must have been the Parisian 
merchant Monsieur Columbies, who, when he died, left £1,300 to a lady 
of Rouen, for having, twenty years before, refused to marry him, " through 
which," states the will, " I was enabled to live independently and happUy 
as a bachelor."' 

It has been, and no dwubt will continue to be, the ambition of some 
prosperous men to be the founder of a rich and great family, and it has 
sometimes happened that, without abandoning this idea, they have, by an 
ingenious device, contrived to disappoint their immediate relations. The 
Will of Sir John Pakington, proved many years ago may be instanced. J. 
S. Eussell, Esq., was his nephew ; at the death of Sir John this nephew 
had a son about four years of age, and to the eldest son that might be 
born of this child, Sir John bequeathed his large landed estates, so that 
the income must have accumulated for nearly forty years before it could 
be enjoyed by the prospective legatee ; in default of issue the estates were 
to go to the descendants of the second son of Sir W. B. Cook ; and in 
case of second default, the property would go to a grandson of Mr. Knight, 
of Lee Castle. Sir John thus effectually debarred any of his Next of Kin 
living at his death from the enjoyment of his property. 

An uncommdn case of eccentricity on the part of an Englishman 
occurred some fifty years ago. His Will contained the following unique 
provisoes : — 

" I bequeath to my monkey, my dear and amusing Jacko, the sum of 
£10 sterling per annum, to be employed for his sole and exclusive use and 
benefit ; to my faithful dog, Shock, and my well beloved cat, Tib, a pension 
of £5 sterling ; and I desire that, in case of the death of either of the three, 
the lapsed pension shall pass to the other two, between whom it is to be 
equally divided. On the death of all three, the sum appropriated to this 
purpose shall become the property of my daughter Gertrude, to whom I 
give this preference among my children, because of the large family she 
has, and the difficulty she finds in bringing them up." 

We have all heard of cases of "waiting for dead men's shoes"; but 
it would probably be difficult to find a parallel case to that above noted — 
namely, a bequest to a daughter on the falling in of three Hves, — those of 
a monkey, a dog, and a cat. 

Another instance of a bequest for the support of domestic pets is the 
following : — 

" In 1875, Mrs. Elizabeth Balls, of Streatham, Surrey, after liberal 
Legacies to hospitals and other charitable institutions, set apart the sum 
of £65 per annum for the support of her late husband's cab mare, and £5 per 
annum for the keep and care of a greyhound ; the mare to be kept in a 
comfortable, warm, loose box, and not to be put to work either in or out 
of harness, and that her back should not be crossed by any member of her 
late husband's family, but that she should be ridden by a person of light 
weight, not above four days a week, and not more than one hour each 
day, at a walking pace." 

Bequests to canine pets often lead to law suits. The history of a case 

WILLS. 97 

of this kind, tried in 1798, was shortly this : — Mrs. Hannah White, by a 
paper purporting to be her last Will and testament, left to the mother of 
one of her servants £25 per annum in trust for the maintenance of five 
favorite cats, during the course of their natural lives ; to St. George's, and 
Middlesex Hospitals, £1,000 each ; a few legacies to domestics, and the 
residue of her estate, which was very considerable, to the apothecary at- 
tending her person. This curious document was witnessed by an attorney 
and the clerk of the parish. The Court of Delegates, on the Will being 
disputed by disappointed relatives, heard Sir William Scott in support ot 
the Cats and the Apothecary, and other Advocates for the Next of Kin. 
The following is the substance of the decree : — " That the bequest to the 
apothecary be struck out of the Will, as being no part of the real Will of 
the deceased, and that probate be granted to the Next of Kin ; that the 
legacies of £35 per annum for the maintenance of the five cats, and the 
bequests to the hospitals aforesaid, together with the legacies to the 
servants, be confirmed, as being the Will of the deceased." It will thus be 
seen that the intentions of this whimsical testatrix were upset, and the Next 
of Kin benefited, but how long the cats were allowed to live is not recorded. 

In 1800, Mrs. Elizabeth Shaw, of Pontefrdct, by her Will bequeathed 
the bulk of her property, valued at £15,000, to her housemaid, Mary Watson. 
The Heir-at-Law disputed the validity of the Will, and endeavored to prove 
that the deceased was in a complete state of intoxication when she executed 
her Will; This allegation, however, was not sustained, and the fortunate 
housemaid gained the day. If Mary were intoxicated with delight at her 
good fortune, such a frame of mind can be easily understood under the 
circumstances, but it was too bad of the disappointed Heir-at-Law to try 
to prove this whimsical testatrix "drunk aud incapable." 

A curious, and I may add a peculiarly hard, case came before Vice- 
Chancellor Bacon in 1880. Thefacts were these :-" Miss Turner devised large 
real estates to her father for life, and then to her brother, on the following 
conditions : — " But if my brother shall marry during my life without my 
consent in writing, or if he shall already have married, or shall hereafter 
marry a domestic servant, or a person who has been a domestic servant," 
then such bequest to her brother to be void. The brother came into pos- 
session of the said estates, and died in 1878, leaving a widow and two chil- 
dren. The suit was instituted against the widow and children, on the 
ground that the testatrix's brother had forfeited his title to the legacy by 
marrying a domestic servant. It was contended, on behalf of the 
widow, that she had been a housekeeper, and not a domestic servant. The 
Vice-Ohancellor, however, was of opinion that a housekeeper was a domes- 
tic servant, and thus the legacy was forfeited. 

A bequest, made by a Frenchman, may truly be styled " A new way 
to pay old debts." Vaugelas, the famous French grammarian, was in 
receipt of several pensions, but so prodigal was he in his charities, that he 
not only always remaines poor but was rarely out of debt, and finally 
acquired among his intimates the sobriquet of Le Hihou, from his compul- 
sory assumption of the habits of the owl, and only venturing in to the 
streets at night. After disposing of the little he possessed to meet the 
claims of his creditors, he adds : — 

" Still, as it may be found that even after the sale of my library and 
effects these funds will not suffice to pay my debts, the only means I can 
think of to meet them is thafmy body should be sold .to the surgeons on 
the best terms that can be obtained, and the product applied, as far as it 


■will go, towards the liquidation of any sums it may be found I still owe ; I 
have been of very little service to society while I lived, I shall be glad if I 
can thus become of any use after I am dead." 

Whether the creditors accepted this well-intentioned bequest in part 
"satisfaction of their claims is not recorded. 

Some few years since, a lady bequeathed her body to the Hunterian 
Museum for dissection, "understanding the Museum to be in great want 
of pathological specimens." After dissection, her body to be burned. 

In l'?74 a Mr Whitehead, much admired for his many literary pubK- 
eations, bequeathed, among other whimsical legacies : "his heart, with £50, 
to Lord le Despenser." 

There is very little doubt that the fear of being thought eccentric or 
singular, prevents a good many people from giving vent to their pecu- 
liarities during life. But this fear of public opinion altogether loses its 
influence in the matter of testamentary dispositions. When, in the pres- 
ence of an expectant throng of bereaved relatives, the reading of the Will 
takes place, the testator is quite beyond either reproach or reply. This 
probably accounts for many a whimsical bequest, and when an expectant 
legatee finds in place of a legacy, only a few personal failings pointed out, 
he receives an unkind cut indeed. 

Dr. Dunlop, of Scotch origin, afterwards a Member of the United 
States Senate, left a very singular Will. It has often been commented on, 
owing to its extreme singularity ; but its principal provisions are so amus- 
ing, that no apology is necessary for reproducing them. The doctor is 
described as having been a jovial and kindly man, and his WiU certainly bears 
out this character. In it he says : — 

"I leave the property of Gairbread, and all the property I may be pos- 
sessed of, to my sisters, and ; the former because she is 

married to a minister who — may God help him — she henpecks ; the latter 
because she is married to nobody, nor is she likely to be, for she is an old 

maid and not market rife I leave my silver tankard to the eldest 

son of old John, as the representative of the family. I would have left it 
to old John himself, but he would have melted it down to make temperance 
medals, and that would have been a sacrilege. However, I leave him my 
big horn snufE-box ; he can only make temperajace horn spoons out of that. 
.... I leave my brother-in-law, Allan, my punch-bowl, as he is a big, 

gauchy man, and likely to do credit to it I leave to Parson Che>: 

vassie my big silver snuff -box as a small token of gratitude to him for tak- 
ing my sister Maggie, whom no man of taste would have taken I 

leave to John Caddell, a silver tea-pot, to the end that he may drink tea 

therefrom to comfort him under the affliction of a slatternly wife 

I leave my silver cup, with the sovereign in the bottom of it, to my sister 

, because she is an old maid, and pious, and therefore necessarily 

given to hoarding ; and also my grandmother's snufE-box, as it looks decent 
to see an old maid taking snuff " 

It was well for this affectionate brother that he had gone heavenward! 
before the gist of his testamentary benefactions were made known, other- 
wise he might have been "interviewed" by his scandalized sisters. 

The following very whimsical bequest I take from a Scotch newspaper : 
— " Some years ago an English gentleman bequeathed to his two daughters 
their weight in £1 bank notes. A finer pair of paper weights has never yet 
been heard of, for the eldest daughter got £51,200, and the younger- 

WILLS. 99 

The Will of Dr. Johnson, the celebrated lexicographer, who died in 
1784, is noteworthy ; by it the bulk of his property was left to " his faith- 
ful black servant. 

The Chevalier Francois de Kosaz, who died in 1876, and who is reported 
to have been very successful in prosecuting claims for persons interested iu 
Unclaimed Money, left a very singular Will. His personal estate was sworn 
under £45,000. The testator seems to have believed that in a " multitude 
of counselors there is wisdom," for he appointed no less than seven execu- 
tors. His Will contains this very extraordinary paragraph : — 

" I beg and supplicate our Merciful Eedeemer to receive every one of 
us in His Holy Paradise. I supplicate our very Holy Mother, the Virgin 
Mary, the very Holy Mother of God, an'fl all the angels and archangels, 
and all the cherubim and seraphim, all the throne and denominations, all 
the dominions and virtuesses of the heavens, all the saints and the seven 
million martyrs of the prosecution against our very holy religion, and all 
the inhabitants of the heavens, to obtain pity, mercy, and pardon of God 
for all our beloved family." 

The bulk of his property he bequeathed to his wife for life ; on her 
death, certain French and Italian Funds were to be set aside as a provision 
for charities in France ; the entire residue of his property was to be applied 
in founding a Catholic Asylum for thirty orphan girls, a Protestant Asy- 
lum for thirty orphan girls, and charities for the relief of the infirm and 
distressed. A Chancery suit arose on the construction to be put on this 
whimsical testator's bequests, and the Heir-at-Law of the Chevalier was 
inquired for. 

Peculiarly-worded Wills have led to the waste of many a goodly pat- 
rimony. Heirs, executors, and beneficiaries seem to take intense delight 
in squabbling over a testator's intentions. Montaigne, the celebrated phil- 
osopher, is stated to have got over any difficulties in the way of carrying 
out his testamentary intentions by the happy expedient of calling all the 
persons named in his Will around his death-bed, and counting out to them 
severally the bequest he had made them. Many a whimsical testator 
might usefully follow Montaigne's example ; but there is always a risk of 
the donor getting better, and finding himself penniless. I once heard of a 
ease of this sort. A small farmer in Suffolk, being very ill, was advised 
by his affectionate relatives to distribute his money, and thus save legacy 
duty. He did so, but got well again. The relatives declined to re-coup 
these supposed death-bed gifts, and left the poor old farmer to seek parish 
relief. Cases of this kind, it is to be hoped, are very rare. 

Khyming Wills are scarce, but amusing. In a case decided in the Pro- 
bate Court in 1875, the testator made a codicil to his Will, as follows : — 

I, having neither kith nor kin, 
Bequeath all I have named herein 
To Margaret, my dearest wife. 
To have and hold as hers for life, 
While in good health and sound in mind 
This codicil I've undersigned. 

His wife and executors having predeceased him, probate was granted to the 
Crown Solicitor, there being no Next of Kin. The publicity given to the 
case may be the means of bringing to the knowledge of some distant rela- 
tives of this evidently well-intentioned testator the news that the Crown 
holds, in trust, funds for their benefit. 



Another curious specimen of a Will in rhyme is that of a Mr. John 
Hedges. The original may be seen at Somerset House : — 

The fifth day of May, 
Being airy and gay, 
And to hyp not inclined. 
But of vigorous mind, 
And my body in health, 
I'll dispose of my wealth. 
And all I'm to leave, 
On this side the grave. 
To some one or other, 
And I think to my brother, 
Because I foresaw 
That my brethren-in-law, 
If I dil not take care, 
Would come in for their share. 
Which I nowise intended. 
Till their manners are mended. 

And of that, God knows there's no sign. 

I do therefore enjoin. 

And do strictly command. 

Of which witness my hand. 

That nought I have got 

Be brought into hotch-pot ; 

And I give and devise. 

As much as in rae lies. 

To the son of my mother. 

My own dear brother. 

To have and to hold 

All my silver and gold. 

As the affectionate pledges , 

Of his brother — 

John Hedges. 

The following is an instance ot marreious good fortune for a day 
laborer, arising out of the "Will of an eccentric testator: — In 1773, — 
Edmunds, Esq., of Monmouth, bequeathed a fortune of upwards of £30,- 
000 to one Mills, a day laborer, residing near Monmouth. Mr. Edmunds, 
who so handsomely provided for this man, would not speak to or see him 
while he lived. 

Again, in 1775, a Mr. Henry Furstone, of Alton, Hampshire, died 
worth about £7,000 in the funds, and having no relation, he left this large 
sum of money to "the first man of his name who shall produce a woman 
of the same name, to be paid them on the day of their marriage." 

We have all heard of unmanageable sons and scapegrace nephews 
being cut off with a shilling, but the following case of a wife having the 
sum of only one shilling bequeathed to her is very sarcastic, and shows to 
what lengths a long-suffering Benedict may be driven. In 1772, John 
G e, Esq., of Surrey, died, and his Will contains this clause : 

" Whereas, it was my misfortune to be made very uneasy by . . . my 
wife, for many years from our marriage, by her turbulent behaviour, for 
she was not content with despising my admonition, but she contrived every 
method to make me unhappy ; she was so perverse to her nature that she 
would not be reclaimed, but seemed only to be born to be a plague to me ; 
the strength of Samson, the knowledge of Homer, the prudence of 
Augustus, the cunning of Pyrrhus, the patience of JdbJ the subtlety of 
Hannibal, and the watchfulness of Hermogones, could not have been suffi- 
cient to subdue her ; for no skill or force in the world would make her 
good ; and as we had lived separate and apart from each other eight 
years, and she having perverted her son to leave and totally abandon me, 
therefore I give her one shilling only." 

One of the most whimsical bequests is recorded in a probate case 
decided in 1879. The testator left £10 to the undertaker who buried his 

A French lady, who died in 1882, desired by her Will that her heart 
might be placed in the tomb of her second husband, but her body in her 
first husband's tomb, in America. 

Mr. John Innes, a well-to-do Lincolnshire farmer, was evidently of 
opinion that a son having "expectations" is far less energetic than one 
having none, for it is recorded that he, for many years, suffered his son to

go to another farmer as a laborer, but by his Will he left his hard-wofTong 
son the handsome fortune of £15,000. 

In the vrell-known Thellusson Will case, it has been computed that, 
had the testator's intentions been carried out in their entirety, the sum of 
money to be divided amongst the Next of Kin at the end of the period 
fixed by the Will for the money to accumulate, would have amounted to 
£140,000,000, or thereabouts. 

The following case is interesting, as showing how prodigiously money 
accumulates at compound interest : 

" M. Ricard appointed by his Will that the sum of 500 livres should be 
divided into five portions. The first, at the end of a hundred years, 
amounting to 13,100 livres, to be laid out in prizes for dissertations proving 
the lawfulness of putting out money to interest. The second, at the end 
of two centuries, amounting to 1,700 000 livres, to be employed in estab- 
lishing a perpetual fund for prizes in literature and arts, and for virtuous 
actions. The third, at the end of three centuries, amounting to more than 
226 millions of livres, to be employed for establishing patriotic banks, and 
founding museums with ample establishments. The fourth, at the' end of 
four centuries, amounting to 30,000 millions, to be employed in building a 
hundred towns in France, containing each 150,000 inhabitants. The fifth, 
at the end of five centuries, amounting to four millions of millions of 
livres, to be appropriated for the payment of the National Debt of Britain 
and Prance, for producing an annual revenue to be divided among all the 
Powers of Europe, for buying up useless offices, purchasing a royal domain, 
increasing the income of the clergy, and abolishing fees for masses, for 
maintaining all children born in France till they be three years of age, for 
improving waste lands and bestowing them on married peasants, for pur- 
chasing manors and exempting the vassals from all servitude, ior founding 
houses of education, workhouses, houses of health, and asylums for 
females, for portioning young women, for conferring honorary rewards 
on merit ; besides a large surplus to be appointed at the discretion of his 

In the list of Dormant Funds in Chancery there is an entry — " The 
one hundred years term account." Can it have reference to the following 
whimsical Will case, a note of which appeared in the Madrid newspapers : 
— " A Spaniard, Juan Delgado, died, leaving a Will endorsed to the effect 
that it should not be opened until one hundred years after his death. The 
hundred years having elapsed, it is not surprising to find that the deposi- 
tory of the Will, as also the location of the property, are anxiously 
inquired for," — no doubt by expectant Next of Kin. 

A very short Will was proved in 1881. The exact words are these : — 
"All that I possess in the world I leave to my wife." But a still shorter 
one is recorded thus: — "Everything to my brother Tom." — Preston's 

In the principal registry of Her Majesty's Coiirt of Probate, at Som- 
erset House, there are Wills of which " approbation " was " had and 
obtained " nearly 500 years ago. The &c8t Will recorded is in the year 
1383, and is in Latin, as most of the very early Wills are. The first 
Will written in English is that of Lady Alice West, widow of Sir Thomas 
West, and was proven on September 1, 1395. It begins thus : — " In dei 
nomine. Amen. On Thursday — that is to sey, the xv day of the moneth 
of Jul, in the yer of the iucarnacion of our Lord Ihu Crist a thousand 
and thre hundred and fourscore and fiftene — 1, Alice West, lady of Hyn- 


ton Martel, in liool estat of my body and in good mynde beynge, make my 
testament in the maner as hit folweth hereafter : In the begynnyng, I 
bequethe my soule to G-od Almighty and to his moder, Seynt Marie, and 
to al the seyntis of heuene, and my body to be beryed in Crischerch, in 
the priorie of the chanones in Hamptschire, by the Newe Forest, wher as 
myne auncestors leggeth." The writing of a Will of 1395 is not to be read 
as easily as the writing of the present day, in consequence of the difficul- 
ties connected with the different shape of the letters, the variations in and 
the uncertainty of the spelling, the unfamiliar abbreviations, and the 
obsolete words ; but from the laborious carefulness with which they were 
originally engrossed, the pains taken with the formation of each letter, 
putting to shame the slipshod writing of the present day, and the great 
care taken of them by the officials who have their custody, they are in a 
wonderful state of preservation, and far more perfect and legible than 
many wills and documents of a much later date. The very slowness with 
which they were written seems to have been the means of rendering them, 
so far as writing can be made so, permanent. The writing has in many 
places, where the ink has faded, been since touched up; and in some 
places, where the parchment is worn, the words are illegible ; but, gener- 
ally, the writing stands out sharp and distinct, although a little browned 
by age. The Wills of persons of position were, in spirit, much the same 
in the fourteenth century as they now are ; there are pecuniary and specific 
legacies to relatives, legacies to old and present servants, legacies for 
charitable purposes, and particular directions about the funeral and place 
of burial. Dame Alice West's Will is too long to give at length; but 
some extracts, showing the articles which at that period were so valuable 
as to be specially bequeathed, the amounts of the legacies, and the persons 
to whom they were left, may prove interesting. The lady commences the 
disposition of her property as follows ■.^-" Also I devyse to Thomas, my 
sone, a bed of tapicers work, with all the tapices of sute, red of colour, 
ypouthered with chapes and scochons in the corners of myn auncestres 
armes, with that I bequethe to the same Thomas the stoffe longyng 
therto — that is to seye, my beste fether-bed and. a clu canevas and a mat- 
eras and twey blankettys and a peyre schetes of reynes and sex of my best 
pilwes," which he will choose. ^' Also, I bequethe to the same Thomas, 
my sone, a peyre matyns book and a peir bedes, and a ryng with which I 
was yspoused to God, which were my lordes his faderes." Except among 
small farmers and shopkeepers in Wales, by whom it is a common custom 
to bequeath bedding to- different members of the family, it is an unusual 
thing in the present day to dispose of it in this manner by Will ; and the 
reasofi is that feather-beds, mattresses, pillows, blankets, and sheets are 
comparatively cheap, and the use of them not confined to the wealthy ; 
but in Lady Alice's time they must have been articles of luxury, and a con- 
siderable item in the dower of a bride. There are several bequests of beds 
in the Will which point to this conclusion — in one, forty marcs are 
bequeathed to Beatrice Wareyn, "and a bed convenable for a gentel- 
woman ;" in another, testatrix bequeaths " to Idkyne, my chambrer, £20, 
and a bed convenable for her estat." Tetetatrix next thinks of her 
daughter-in-law. "Also I bequethe to Johane my dough ter, my sone is 
wyf, a masse book and alle the bokes that I have of latyn, englisch, and 
frensch out take the forsayd matyns book that is bequeth to Thomas my 
sone. Also I bequethe to the same Johane all my vestyments of my 
chapell and my tapites whit and red paled, and blu and red paled, with 

WILLS. 103 

alle my grene tapites that longeth to my chapell forsayd, g,ad with the 
irontels of the forsayd auter, and with all the rydells aud trussing cofres 
•and all other apparaile that longeth to my chapelle forsayd." We wonder 
what books she had, and particularly what English books ; a list of them 
would be most interesting. She could not have had many, and we cannot 
■suggest what they were. It must be remembered that this Will was made 
more than five years before the death of Chaucer, and nearly eighty years 
before the first book was printed in English, and books in Enghsh must 
consequently have been few indeed ; their scarcity made them of great 
value, they were carefully treasured, and their future ownership specially 
provided, for by Will. Something might be said as to the education of 
ladies of the highest class at that time. Here was a lady possessing books 
in English, Latin, and French, which it is presumable she could read, 
Latin, however, was the language of her religion ; French was probably 
the tongue she was brought up in, and was the language of the Court ; 
and English was the language of her dependents ; so that, almost as a 
matter of necessity, every lady of rank must hav.e been familiar with all 
three languages.. There are several other legacies to testatrix's daughter- 
in-law, Johane. She gets, among other things, *' a basyn of silver, with 
boses upon the brerdes, and " a chales,'' we suppose for use in her chapel ; 
and " my chare, and that I have longyng thereto. Also a chariot with 
twey standardes heled with lether which that serveth for myn barneys." 
Then come gilts to other mefnbers of her family: — To "Sir Nichol 
Clifton, Knyght, and to Alianore, his wif, my donghter, and to Thomas 
Clifton, here son, £130, euenliche to be departed betwix ham thre ; and if 
Thomas here sone forsayd deyeth, I wol that it tome to profet of his 
fader and his moder ;" and to, " my suster Dame Luce Pitzherberd, prior- 
isse of Sheftebury, £40." ; The three following legacies speak for them- 
selves : — "Also I bequethe ^40 to be departed among alle my servants, men 
and women of myn household, as well for their attendance on Thomas 
her sone as for her, and as welto hem that I have eny thyng bequethe to 
in this testament as to hem that I have nothyng bequethe, and I wole that 
it be departed trewely to every, man and woman after his degre." "Also I 
bequethe £40 to be departed among my pouere tenantes where I have 
lordshype — that is to seye,. to hem -that have most nede." "Also I 
bequethe to Richard Ff orster, \which is a blyndman that was somtyme ser- 
vant with my f orsed lord, 20 ihajcs." We should not expect to find any 
Will previously to the Reformation without a legacy to say masses. Lady 
West gives £18, 10s, "for to,-synge and seye 4,400 masses for my lord Sir 
Thomas West is soule, and for myne, and for alle cristene soules," and 
they are to be " done " within " fourteen night after her deces." If it is 
reckoned up, it will be found that masses then cost about a penny each. 
There is another bequest t6. Christ Church, where she was to be buried, 
■" to bidde and to rede and synge for iny. Iprdes soule forsayd, and myn, 
and alle cristene soules, while' the world sclial laste." Testatrix gives many 
sums of 100 shillings to bodies of religious women and communities of 
brothers, among others to the religious women the " menouresses" liv- 
ing without Aldgate of London, the " freres prechoure" within Ludgate of 
London in Plet-street, the Augustine brothers within Bishopsgate, and the 
Hospital of Seynt Marie Maudeleyne above Wynchester, and sometimes is 
added, " to the priests belonging to the same," " to be departed among 
them by evene portions for to synge and rede divine service, and to preye 
for my forseyd lordes soule and myn, and for alle cristene soules, and for 


the estat of Thomas my sone and Johane his 'wif and her children," and 
some smaller sums to several recluses for the same object. Having given 
iill the legacies she desires, the testatrix then disposes of the remainder of 
lier property : — " An al the residue of my godes, after the dettys that I owe 
ben quyt, and after my testament is parfoned, I bequethe to the foreayd 
Thomas my sone ;" and, after all these directions and legacies, the good 
lady finishes her Will by ordering the manner of her own interment ; 
when she^dies her body is to be carried "to the forsayd priorie of Chris- 
cherch,, and with right litel cost," buried at the first masse, with a taper 
of six pounds of wax burning at her head, and another taper of six pounds 
of wax burning at her feet. 



IN" 1852 this adTertisement appeared : " Notice. — If Mr. William SnoTT- 
don. Joiner, late of West Herrington, in the County of Durham, 
will apply to any of the parties mentioned below, he will hear of some- 
thing to his advantage " 

Mr. Snowdon, however, did not apply, and the result was a Chancerj 
suit, asking the directions of the Court, as to the disposal of the funds 
accumulated by reason of this legatee's disappearance. A decree was 
made by Vice-Chancellor Stuart directing (among other things) . inquiry 
as to whether the aforesaid William Snowdon was living or dead. In con- 
sequence of that decree, further advertisements were issued, but thfr 
missing legatee was not traced. The matter came on again before Vice- 
Chancellor Stuart, and the following is an extract from the Vice-Ohancel» 
tor's judgment : 

"The rule was well-established that if a person could be shown not to- 
have been heard of since a given day, and seven years or more have 
elapsed, one might presume at the expiration of that time that he was 
dead. Of course he might reappear, and such cases had happened. Thfr 
executors in this case caused advertisementa to be inserted in the news- 
papers respecting William Snowdon without effect, but that was no evi- 
dence that he died before •sthe testator. There was no sufficient evidence to- 
presume that he died at any particular time during the seven years. H& 
must, therefore, be taken to be dead, but to have outlived the testator. ...."" 

The foregoing is a fair specimen of many a lapsed legacy case. 
Nothing is more common than for persons to leave their native land^ 
and take no further thought of kith or kin left behind. Should the 
legatee above referred to ever reappear, he will doubtless be able to 
recover his estate from the persons now enjoying the same. Such inci- 
dents are not without precedent. 

Many very remarkable causes relating to Lapsed Legacies have been 
decided by the Court of Chancerv, but it would probably be difficult to 
find one more curious in its incidents than the following, which oam©^ 
before Vice-Chancellor Malins, and in which a sum of £34,834 lis. 6d.. 
Consols was in dispute. The facts were as follows : In 1869 Mr. Dun- 
combe, an aged Solicitor, of New Inn, Strand, died intestate, possessed of 
very considerable wealth. He had three children, namely, Henry Stuart. 
Duncombe, Charles William Duncombe, and Anna Johnson, a widow. 
Mr. Duncombe was not on good terms with Henry Stuart, his eldest son. 
In 1868 that son, theu sixty-six years of age, went to his father's office 
for pecuniary help, but the old man dismissed him with half-a-crown., 



From that time till the institution of the suit the son had never been heard 
of. In 1870 advertisements were inserted as follows : 

"Tvt'ENTY Pounds Kewaed. — To Kegistrars of Deaths and Parish 
Clerks, Tailors' Trade Societies, and Masters of Union and other Work- 
houses. — Wanted, information of. la person named Henry Stuart Dun- 
combe, a journeyman tailor, much in the habit of traveling in the coun- 
try, and who, if living, would be 67 years of age. Was last seen in 
London in August, 1868. Any person who can give information as to his 
■whereabouts, or who can supply a certificate of his death, will receive the 
above reward on applying to . . . ." 

Probably few people reading the foregoing advertisement would be 
likely to guess that the journeyman tailor inquired for was the son of 
a Solicitor and Heir to £25,000 ; and even had Mr. Duncombe seen the 
advertisement, he would not have been ternpted to reply thereto. The 
notice seems carefully worded to glean information as to his death. He 
is not even told that his father is dead, nor is he informed that on 
applying to So-and-so he will " hear of something to his advantage." 

No reply came to the advertisement in any shape or form.. Mrs. 
Johnson (formerly Duncombe), when she married, executed a settlement 
by which, if Henry Stuart Duncombe predeceased her, her interest in his 
share of Mr. Duncombe's estate would be bound, otherwise not. She died, 
leavii\g one child only, a boy. A suit was instituted with, respect to the 
aforesaid sum of £24,834 lis. 6d., which represented the missing son's 
■share of his father's estate. The question was, whether the trustee's of 
Mrs. Johnson's settlement were entitled to the fund, or whether it was 
■divisible among the Next of Kin of the missing legatee, assuming him to 
have been alive at the end of seven years from the time when he was last 
■seen in London, but now dead, intestate, and unmarried. 

The Vice Chancellor, in his judgment, characterized the case as a 
most remarkable one, and after recapitulating the facts, said that haying 
regard to the authorities, he must presume— (1) That Henry Stuart Dun- 
•combe did survive his father; and (2) that he was now dead. There 
lemained another question, when did he die? Mrs. Johnson, the sister 
■was now dead. Jf her brother died in her lifetime, she would, as one of 
his Kext of Kin, have an interest in his share of the property. She had 
■executed a settlement, and had left one child. If, however, her brother 
survived her, then his share woiild not be bound by her settlement of her 
interest in it. The only conclusipn at which the Vice-Chancellor could 
^arrive on this part of the case was that Henry Stuart Duncombe was now 
certainly dead, intestate, and that his brother and nephew were his 
sole Next of Kin. They would, therefore, take his share of his father's 
property in equal moieties, and there must be a declaration accordingly. 
-If (added the Vice-Chancellor) hereafter Henry Stuart Duucombe should 
be found to be living, he must resort to his brother and nephew for the 
Tepayment of the money. It was entirely his own fault that he had not 
made his existence known (if he did exist) ; for it was hardly likely. that if 
Tie was still alive he had not seen some of the very numerous advertise- 
ments issued for him. The Vice-Chancellor said he himself thought that 
Henry Stuart Duncombe was " as dead as a door-nail." Summed up 
shortly, the decree was this: "That Henry Stuart Duncombe survived 
'his father, and was alive at the end of seven years from the time he was 
last seen (August, 1868) ; that he was now dead, intestate ; and that his 
■sole Next of Kin, his brother and nephew, were now entitled to his share 
•of Mr. Duncombe's property." 


Many an exciting novel has far less foundation on fact than the 
Henry Stuart Duncombe case. The missing Heir would be eighty years 
-old if living now, and if he were to put in an appearance and claim this 
£35,000, after being dismissed from his father's presence with half-a-crown, 
his doing so would be the very acme of romance. 

The following is the note of a case decided in 1874, by the Court of 
Session, Scotland, after fifteen years' fruitless search for a Missing Legatee : 

This was an action of niultiplepoinding and exoneration, instituted 
in 1859,. at the instance of Mr.C. M. Barstow, C.A., judicial factor on the 
•estate of the late William Maltman, of the East India Company's Service, 
who died at Elie, in the county of Fife, in March, 1854, leaving heritable 
And personal property to the value of £10,000, or thereabouts. He had 
several brothers and sisters, all of whom predeceased him, with the excep- 
4;ion,of Gavin Maltman, who went abroad about 1814. This Gavin Malt- 
man, who was born in November, 1793, and who had in the course of his 
life wandered over a considerable portion of the West Indian Islands and 
North America,, was last heard of at Shediac, New Brunswick, in July, 
1854. Various reports of his death were sent to this country, and the 
"Court on two occasions sent a Commission abroad to inquire into the 
truthfulness of these reports, but they turned out to be unfounded. The 
dourt, in consideration of Gavin Maltmau's great age, his long absence, 
and the fact that he had been extensively advertised for and inquired after 
.... ordained the Judicial Factor to divide the personal estate among 
the Next of Kin of Walter Maltman other than Gavin Maltman, the Next 
•of Kin being cousins once removed, and to convey the heritable estate to 
the Heirs-at-Law .... on the ground that Gavin Maltman, if aUve, had 
had ample opportunity of appearing and claiming the Succession. 

The passing of the Presumption of Life Limitation (Scotland) Act, 
1881, has given rise to many claims by persons desirous of possessing them- 
selves of the estates of relatives long lost sight of. The most important 
provision of the Act is, that persons not heard of for seven years or 
upwards are assumed to be dead, and the Next of Kin may institute pro- 
ceedings to " uplift and enjoy" their estates and property. 

There wUl doubtless be some cases of hardship arising, by reason of 
the missing Heirs-at-Law returning home afte.r the seven years limit and 
finding their estates distributed among their affectionate relatives. Incidents 
•of this kind are on record, but I have only space for the following remark- 
able case : — 

"In 1761 a certain French astronomer was sent to India by the Parisian 
Academy of Sciences, to watch the Transit of Venus. He arrived, unf ort- 
Tinately, too late; but he had the patience to remain eight years in that 
country till the Transit of 1769. Ill-luck, however, still pursued him, for 
the state of the atmosphere prevented him from witnessing the second 
Transit. He then returned to France, where he found his friends under 
the impression that he had been dead and buried for years. His heirs were 
already in possession of his property." 

The foregoing jottings are sufficient for the purpose of drawing atten- 
tion to the fact, that large sums of money not unf requently lapse to Heirs- 
,at-Law and Next of Kin, owing to the legatee not being traceable. —

THEKE is an old saying, " Out of sight, out of mind," and in many- 
cases it is doubtless only too true, but at Christmas and on festive 
occasions when families meet together, there is no toast more heartily drank 
than that of " The Absent Ones." Some of these missing ones may have 
been lost sight of "for years, and of their whereabouts it has not been pos- 
sible to glean the slightest intelligence, though every known channel likely 
to afford the much-wished -for news has been resorted to. Enormous sums 
are annually spent in searching after Missing Relatives and Friends ; in 
many cases these searches are crowned with success, while in others every 
effort proves abortive. 

Scores of people at present belonging to a circle below that of the 
" Upper Ten" have really fair grounds for expecting a change of fortune 
in the right direction some day, but they lack the necessary clue on which 
all their hopes turn. It has frequently happened that a long-forgotten 
relative has been brought to remembrance by the delightful surprise of a. 
substantial legacy, the news being conveyed through the medium of a news- 
paper Advertisement. Of such an announcement the following is a speci- 
men: — 

"Paeticulae Notice. — Missing Relatives. — Frederick Foot and 
B. Foot (sons of Matthew Foot, late of Enniskerry, in the countyof Wicklow, 
Ireland, deceased), who left Ireland in the year 1859, for the United States. 

of America, are requested to communicate without delay to

information relating to the above parties will be thankfully received. 

. Advertisements of the following kind are also very numerous ; they 
are invaluable as a means of tracing Missing Relatives: — 

"Missing Relative. — Thomas Allen or his Representative, who' 
went from London to Australia about %% years ago, will hear of something

The following must have been especially gratifying to the testator's 
poor relatives ; it is the only Advertisement of the kind I have come across : —

time in the month of February, 1785), to whom he did not, in and by his.

Here is another curious Missing Relative Advertisement : — 

" Infoemation. — Any person who can give information as to the.

of America, will receive a good compensation for the favor. The said

Notes were discovered sewn in between his clothes ; a bundle of Manuscript 
was found in his pocket, containing a learned "History of the Progress of 
the Arts and Sciences from the period of the Komans up to the year 1808," 
In his wretched hovel near the City a very valuable Library was also found.

The following extraordinary Advertisement appeared in 1836 ; there 
are doubtless numbers of people equally as anxious as the advertiser was 
as to an uncle's testamentary dispositions : — 

" The Advertisbb Wishes to Find His Uncle Out. — He is the 
son of James and Susan Hill, of Meikleham, Surrey ; Mr. Webb, of East 
Hisley, ; George Armon, that keeps the Post-Office, High Wickham, Buck-

tenham, baker ; Thomas Scott, butcher ; Elizabeth Button, of Burnham, 
in Essex — those are all Relations. If any person can give any informa- 
tion of this person, or any of the above, so that he may know if they 
HAVE RECEIVED ANY BENEFIT FROM HIS UNCLE, and where his effects lay, 
it being one-and-twenty years since he heard of him ; George Harmon said 
the effects laid at Burnham." 

"Whoever will endeavor to get the property shall receive a fourth part 
of it, as the Advertiser is the only Male Heir to this property. Direct

Many domestic complications result from husbands leaving their homes, 
as appears from the following case: — In 1850 Maria Dunster married John 
Milton, and in 1854, well-knowing that her husband was alive, she went 
through the marriage ceremony, by the name of Maria Dunster Chappie, 
with one Francis Edwards, since deceased. Mrs. Milton often saw her law- 
ful husband, who was a Corporal in the Devon Militia. In May, 1870, 
however, she went through the ceremony of marriage with another man 
named Henry Melhuish, who being, it was alleged, ignorant of his sup- 
posed wife being already married, by his Will, dated August, 1870, gave 
her all his real and personal estate, and appointed her sole executrix. 
Henry Melhuish died in 1871, and Mrs. Milton proved the Will ; the per- 
sonality being of the value of about £800, or thereabouts. After 18 71 Mrs. 
Milton returned to her husband. A Chancery suit resulted, the brother 
of Henry Melhuish being the plaintiff, and he claimed the fund as sole 
Next of Kin of his deceased brother, alleging that Mrs. Milton had obtained 
the money by fraudulently assuming the title of his brother's wife. Mrs. 
Milton denied that while li-Ning with Mr. Melhuish, or at the time of going 
through the ceremony of marriage with him, she had ever heard of her 
husband, and afiBrmed that she had not, in fact, heard of him for nineteen 
years, and believed him to be dead. Such being the facts — and it would 
be difficult to find a parallel case — the Vice-Chancellor said he was of opin- 
ion that Melhuish had no certain evidence at the time of the ceremony of 
marriage having been performed, as to Milton being alive or dead, and he 
married. Mrs. Milton, otherwise Edwards, notwithstanding. The Vice- 
Chancellor added : " It would not be safe to assume that the character 
of wife was the only motive for the bequest. Might not the testator have 
intended that she should have the property in the events that had hap- 
pened ? . . . . Fraud not being established, the bill must be dismissed 
with costs." 


Here we have a case of a long lost husband turning up after nineteen 
years' absence on the scent of a legacy, and actually enjoying, after so 
long a lapse of time, the fortune left by Melhuish, 

Here is a curious notice by a colonist : — 

" If my wife Jane Young, last heard of in Sidney, in 1878, does not 
return, or communicate with me within three months from date, I intend to< 
marry again,^— (signed) Thomas Young. 

Port Douglas. 4th August, 1882." 

In 1882 Sir James Hannen had to adjudicate on the following pecu- 
liar case. — ■ 

" Counsel applied on behalf of Augustus Alexander de Nieeville for 
letters of administration to the property of his father, Mr. Stanislaus de 
Niceville, who must reasonably be supposed to be dead, as he has not been 
heard of since 1831, and if he were now alive he would be 105 years of age. 
In his early days he held a commission in the French army, but he came 
to this country in 1826, and settled in Devonshire. On the breaking out 
of the French Eevolution he and his wife went to France. His wife re- 
turned to Devonshire, but kept up a correspondence with her husband till 
February 1831, when she ceased to hear from him. Every inquiry was- 
made to try and trace the husband, but without avail. Madam de Nice- 
ville died in 1875 without having apphed for letters of administration. 
AfBdavits were read in support of these facts, and the learned President 
granted the application." 

Noth withstanding lavish expenditure of time and money, efforts ta 
trace • Missing Relatives occasionally prove abortive. Of this class of 
cases, probably the most notable instance on record is that of the search 
for Sir John Franklin, in the result of which many Heirs-at-Law and 
Next of Kin must have been interested. 

The main facts are these: — In 1845 the Ereius and Terror left our 
shores, the number of officers and men on board being 138. The last 
despatches were received from Baffin's Bay, July 12, 1845, when Sir Johni 
wrote most cheeringly of the prospects of the Expedition, and expressed a. 
hope that his wife and daughter would not be over anxious if the Expedi- 
tion should not return by the date fixed (July, 1848) ; the latest date|on which 
the Expedition was actually seen, was July 26, 1845 ; the ships were then 
moored to an iceberg, waiting for an opportunity to cross over to Lancaster 
Sound. In August, 1850, traces of the Expedition's first winter quarters 
were found by Captain Austin. In 1849 the then Board of Admiralty 
offered a reward of £20,000 to "any ship or ships of any country, or to any- 
exploring party whatever which should render efficient assistance to the. 
missing ships or their crews, or to any portion of them," — ^with what result, 
is too well known. 

Numerous Parliamentary Eeturns have from time to time been pub- 
lished as to the cost of theSe searching expeditions, and in 1854 it was. 
estimated that between 1848 and 1853 over £800,000 had been thus spent. 
From 1854 to 1874 Arctic expeditions have gone on their perilous voyages, 
and have returned with more or less barren results. It has been estimated 
that the total outlay on these magnificent enterprises cannot have been 
less than two million sterling ! Lady Franklin seems, to the last, to have 
nobly clung to the hope that tidings of her long-lost husband would be 
found, for shortly before her death, in 1873, she caused the following 
Advertisement to be inserted in the Times : — 

"Two Thousand Pounds Reward offered by Lady Franklin to 


any one who will take to her, previous to the 1st of January, 1875, the- 
whole of the Journals or other Records which he may find of the Expedi- 
tion of the Erelibs and Terror, and which are believed to have been deposited 
near Point Victory on King William's land by the survivors of the expedition 
in 1848." 

The Franklin case is remarkable, not only for the amount of money 
spent in endeavoring to find a clew to the crews of missing ships, but also 
as showing the indomitable pluck and energy of British seamen in follow- 
ing up a forlorn hope. 

£1 1881 a reward of £300 was offered by the Sidney Government for 
a clew to a party of five persons who disappeared from the Coast of 
Austraha, 300 miles south of Sidney, on a geological survey expedition. 
The. search for the missing expedition, however, has, thus far, proved as- 
unsuccessful as in the Franklin case. 

Advertisements for Missing Relatives are increasing year by year ; it. 
would, therefore, seem as if the public found this kind of publicity answer 
the desired end. It cannot be too generally known that' a record is kept 
of all such Advertisements, as it often happens that many years elapse- 
before they are brought under the notice of the interested parties, owing to- 
absence beyond seas, and 'other causes. 

I take the following romantic story from a recent number of the Trn'onto- 
Mail, and with it I may appropriately close these jottings on Missing Rela- 
tives : — 

"About twenty years ago ia French lad was kidnapped from Montreal,, 
and taken to sea. He followed sailing for some years, and eventually 
settled in Michigan, being employed by a Mining Company. A few years ; 
ago a party of emigrants arrived' at the station, and being strangers, and 
ignorant of the English langiiage, they made inquiries as to the French 
families residing there, and were directed to the house of the young 
Frenchman, who gave them lodgings for the night. In the course of the 
evening the fact was disclosed that the emigrants and their host were 
originally from the same portion of the Dominion. The host repeated' 
the story of his kidnapping. The family of emigrants had lost a son 
years ago, who mysteriously disappeared, and had never since been heard 
of. The interest of both parties was aroused, and further questioning 
proved the fact that the host of the emigrant family was the long-lost 
son." — Preston's Unclaimed Money. 



IT not unfrequently happens that accounts classed as "bad debts" in the 
books of many of the trading firms most unexpectedly bring in assets 
to the intense gratification of the creditors. One of the earliest examples 
of this kind of good fortune is contained in the following Advertisement 
extracted from the London Gazette of 1666 : — 

" Whereas, Jeremiah Snow, late of Lombard-street, Goldsmith, now 
living in Broad Street, did owe divers persons. Anno 1652, £8,300 ; who 
at his desire did accept of £6,325 in full, and gave him discharges abso- 
lute (which was occasioned by the faihng of two French Merchants, who 
were at that time indebted to him £3,400, but never paid him a fifth part, 
as by the testimonials remaining with the Public Notary it may appear), 
since which time it has pleased God to bless fhis endeavours with some 
small estate : He, therefore, in gratitude and justice, invites them to 
receive the full remaihder of their principal money, excepting such as by 
his oath he shall affirm to have paid in part or in full. 

"And he declares this publication is not for vam glory (Eetribu- 
tion ia this kind being indispensable) nor to get more credit, but because 
his friends have adjudged it conveniently necessary that his Vindication 
might be as publick as then was the Scandal." 

Many a long-suffering creditor would doubtless be highly delighted to 
read a similar announcement to the above in the pages of some newspaper 
of the present day, and a perusal of this chapter will show that Unexpected 
Assets do often accrue for the benefit of creditors, or their representatives, 
long after all hope of twenty shillings in the pound' has vanished. 

In the autobiography of Benjamin Franklin a very remarkable case 
of the kind is given. Speaking of Mr. Denham, a Quaker friend of his, 
Franklin says : — 

" I must record one trait of this good man's character. He had 
formerly been in business at Bristol, but failed, in debt to a number of 
people, compounded, and went to America. There, by close application 
to business, as a merchant, he acquired a plentiful fortune in a few years. 
Returning to England in the ship with me, he invited his old creditors to 
an entertainment, at which he thanked them for the easy composition 
they had favoured him with, and, when they expected nothing but the 
treat, every man, at his first remove, found under his plate an order on a 
banker for the full amount of the unpaid remainder, with interest." 

This good Quaker's example is worthy of imitation, and many a 
bankrupt who has gone through the convenient process of whitewashmg, 



and prospered again, might take the hint with the prospect of a wonder- 
fully relieved conscience. . 

Here is another specimen of what may be called an Unexpected Asset 
Advertisement : — 

A fund is available for the following parties (or their representatives), who, in 

1825, resided as mentioned below, on application to .... & Co., Solicitors 

Dublin, or ... . Solicitors .... London: — 

Everington & Co., Ludgate Hill. 
Thomas Hamilton, St. Pancras Street. 
Vanilton & Carson, Prince's Street. 
Jane Clarke, Regent Street. 
Sarah Shirley, Salisbury Square. 

Watson & Co., Grutter Lane. 
Wm. Prazier, Norfolk Street, Strand. 
Thos. Caldwell, New Bridge Street, Black- 
friars. . 
J. & W. Hayward, Oxford Street, all in the 

John Thomas, Dover Street. City of London. 

The foregoing notice appeared thirty years after the persons named 
resided at the addresses given so that in all probability something worth 
looking after had unexpectedly accrued for them or their representatives. 
Another case of the same class as the above is the following : — 
" Lord Alvanley's Creditors. The following Debenture Creditor's of 
the late Lord Alvanley have omitted to receive their final dividends, 
namely : — 

[Here follows a long List of Creditors.] 

The sums payable may be obtained by the parties legally entitled by 
applying to ... . Solicitors. 

The case of Ashley v. Ashley, decided, in 1876, by the Court of Appeal 
in Chancery, may be safely described as a remarkable Unexpected Asset 
case. The facts were these : — In ]»748, a decree was made for the admin- 
istration of the personal estate of a testator then recently deceased, the 
decree directing that his personal estate should be applied in payment of 
his debts, funeral expenses; and legacies. In 1785, the cause came on to be 
heard on further directions and the Master having certified that the per- 
sonal estate was insufficient to pay the debts, it was ordered that the testa- 
tor's real estate should be sold, and the proceeds brought into Court. This 
having been done, and certain specialty creditors who were entitled to prior 
charges having been paid, the Master, in June, 1793, made another Report, 
and in July, 1793, an Order was made that the cash therein mentioned 
should (after payment of cost and certain specialty debts) be divided 
among the simple contract creditors in proportion to the amounts due to 
them, and it was referred to the Master to make the apportionment. The 
Master made a further Eeport, stating the sums which were to be paid, and 
the majority of the creditors took out of Court the sums thus apportioned, 
but some of these sums were never applied for and were left unclaimed in 
Court for a great number of years. In the year 1867, attention was 
directed to these unclaimed sums, and about the same time — more than one 
hundred, and twenty years after the testator's death — a considerable sum of 
money unexpectedly accrued to the estate. The Heir-at-Law of the testa- 
tor petitioned the Court, and an inquiry was directed to ascertain the per- 
sons who were entitled to the money in Court, both to the unclaimed sums 
and the newly accrued fund. Advertisements were issued, but only some of 
the creditors who had originally proved came forward. As to some of the 


apportioned sums which had remained in the Court unclaimed, no represent- 
atives of the persons to whom those sums had been originally apportioned 
came forward. The persons who did re-assert their claims asked also inter- 
est from August, from 1793, upon the unpaid balances of their debts, and 
contended that they were entitled to be paid out of the moneys in Court, 
the full amount of their debts with interest, and that those of the creditors 
who had not come forward again were to be treated as having abandoned 
their claims altogether. The Heir-at-Law and the Next of Kin of the tes- 
tator also asserted their claims. The Court, however, held that the appor- 
tioned sums which had been left unclaimed were the property of the persons 
to whom they had originally been ordered to be paid, or their representa- 
tives, and that, in the absence of an Act of Parliament, there was no juris- 
diction to order them to be paid out to any one else. Those sums must, 
therefore, remain in Court till some one came forward and showed a title 
to them. The newly accrued fund must, under the circumstances, be appor- 
tioned among all the persons who were originally found to ,be creditors. 
The Court also held that, — " the creditors whose debts carried interest were 
entitled to interest on the unpaid balances of their debts from August, 1792, 
with this exception, that those creditors who had left their money in Court 
could have no interest on the money so left. In this respect they must 
bear the consequences of their own neglect." 

The foregoing case proves that it is not only possible for assets to 
accrue unexpectedly to an estate, but that even after the lapse of so long 
a period as from 1748 to 1876 the representatives of creditors can claim to 
share such funds. 

In turning over old family papers, it is no uncommon thing for one to 
come across accounts of many year's standing, part payment only of which 
has been received, owing to the debtors having got into dif&culties which 
necessitated either the creditors taking a composition of a few shillings in 
the pound, or losing the whole. These bid accounts have long since been 
forgotten, the original creditors having died, and nothing more is done in 
the matter until the representatives of the deceased creditors receive a noti- 
fication from the Court of Chancery or the Court of Bankruptcy that a 
sum of money awaits distribution in the shape of Unexpected Assets. It 
occasionally happens that very large sums are thus distributed, as will be 
seen by the following Advertisement relating to the affairs of a firm of 
Bankers who executed a Trust Deed in 1803, and wliose creditors or their 
representatives were inquired for over sixty years after the execution of the 
said Trust Deed, namely, in 1864 : — 

"In Chancery — "Whereas, in or about the month of July, 1803, a Deed 

of Trust was executed by"Messrs bankers, for the benefit of such of 

the creditors of the partnership firm as should execute the said deed. 
And whereas, in pursuance of certain decrees or orders .... various 
creditors came in and proved their debts. And, whereas, various of the said 
creditors it is believed are dead, and it is not known who are now their legal 
personal representatives or the parties entitled to such debts. Now, pursu- 
ant to an Order .... the several persons and firms named in the schedule 
hereto named being creditors of the said firm at the date of the said Deed 
of Trust of 1803, and who duly executed such deed, and came in before 
the Master and proved their debts, or the legal personal representatives of 
any such creditors, and all other persons claiming to be entitled to such 
debts, are by their Solicitors .... to come in and establish their right to 
such debts." 



The Schedule contains the names and addresses of the original credit- 
ors (about 500) who signed the deed. The following were some of the 
largest creditors — the total amount due to creditors or their representatives 
was nearly £150,000 :—

On the transfer of the East Indian Railway to the Government, in 
the year 1880, the " Surplus Assets " of the Company amounted to about 
£110,000, arising from unclaimed dividends, interest on investments there- 
of, etc. No list of the persons entitled to these Unexpected Assets was 
published, as in the Thames Tunnel Company case before referred to 
(page 108). The fund was distributed thus : £34,160 to the late Chair- 
man of the Company in commutation of his annuity ; £15,000 to the 
then Chairman for extraordinary services ; a portion thereof to the pro- 
prietors ; and a further portion towards charitable objects. 

In 1882, the representatives of the creditors of a gentleman who died 
in Suffolk as long ago as 1827 were inquired for. The amount to be dis- 
tributed was nearly £1,200. 

Advertisements for Creditors or their Eepresentatives are often over- 
looked by the persons interested, owing to the Advertisement not appear- 
ing among ISText of Kin notices. The following was inserted in a long 
string of Trustee Eelief Act Advertisements, but it contains remarkable • 
good news concerning Unexpected Assets : — 

"Joseph Lomas, Deceased. — Whereas, Joseph Lomas, late of . . . was 
... in the year 1831 .... carrying on the business of a cheese factor 
in partnership with .... And whereas, in or about the same year the 
said partners arranged with the creditors ... .by paying a composition 
upon the amount of the debts due from ihem. And whereas, the said Jo- 
seph Lomas died .... having by his will ma(fe certain provisions with 
respect to the payment of the balance of the ^debts so compounded for 
as aforesaid. Notice is hereby given, that all persons claiming to have 
been creditors of .the said partnership at the date of the said composition 
or the legal personal .representatives of such of them as may be dead, are 
hereby required to send particulars of their debts to . . . ." 

Two very remarkable cases of Unexpected Assets were chronicled in 
the year 1882. In one case the creditors of Mr. C. Newton,— ^the largest 
dry goods merchant in Sydney, a well-known exporter, — unexpectedly 
received the balance of their debts (5s. in the pound). Mr. Newton some 
twelve years before had been compelled to ask his creditors for time. This 
payment of 5s. in the pound is said to have absorbed £40,000. In recogni- 
tion of Mr. Newton's commercial honesty, his creditors presented him with 
a steam launch for fishing purposes ; they also presented Mrs. Newton 
with a diamond bracelet and a diamond ring. 


In the other case the creditors of a Mr. Archbald Winterbottom (who 
failed some fifteen years ago for £50,000, and paid a composition of lOs. 
in the pound) received the balance in full. It is said that this honorable 
transaction caused great excitement on the Bradford Exchange. 

The following is an extract from an Advertisement which appeared in 
1876 ; it proves that the representatives of creditors are sometimes inquired 
for nearly 150 years after a testator's decease : 

"Whereas, certain sums of Stock and Cash, of the value of £13,000 
or thereabouts, are now standing to the credit of an old suit in Chancery 
.... which sums are alleged to be payable to the Ceeditoes of Chakles 
PiTFiELD, formerly of Middlesex, who died in 1740, whose names are set 
out in the Eeport of Master Lane, bearing date August 9, 1793 .... 
And whereas certain of the said Creditors did not receive the amounts 
directed to be paid to them, and the said sums of Stock and Cash have 
in part arisen from the investment and accumulation of such amount, and 
have in other part arisen from portions of the residuary personal estate of 
the said Charles Pitfield, which have been received since the date of the 
said Order. Now, therefore, all persons claiming to be legally or benefi- 
cially entitled to or interested in the said funds .... are to send notice 
of their claims to ... . Solicitors.

A romantic instance of restitution appeared in Chamber's Edinburgh 
Journal some fifty years ago. The narrative is headed, "Curious how 
things come about sometimes," and the following is a sumtnary of it: — 

There once resided within easy distance of a large town in the west of 
Scotland, a Mr. James Warrington, an extensive jeweler and watchmaker. 
His family consisted of himseB, his wife, two sons, and two daughters^ 
The name of the eldest son was Edward who was engaged to a young lady 
named Langdale, and their marriage was only delayed until the completion 
of certain business transactions. Matters, then, stood in this position with 
the family, when Warrington returned one morning from the shop in great 
agitation and excitement. "Jess," he said, addressing his wife, "we are 
ruined — utterly ruined. The shop has been broken into, and at least five 
thousand pounds' worth of plate and watches carried off. I have been 
with the police through all the most blackguard haunts of the city, but can 
discover no trace of either the thieves or the goods; The police say there 
is great doubt of any of the property ever being recovered." 

At the time this misfortune happened young Warrington was from 
home, and the intimation he had of it was from a newspaper paragraph, 
headed, "Extensive robbery of silver plate and watches" He hurried 
home ; found the family in great distress, and to his further grief dis- 
covered that the extent of the robbery had not been exaggerated. For 
many weeks the Warringtons indulged in the hopes that some clue would 
be found to the robbery. These hopes were never realized ; the robbery 
had been, as the police said, clean and cleverly done. No trace of the per- 
petrators, or any part of the property, was ever discovered. In the mean- 
time, Mr. Warrington had paid all his creditors and literally left himself 
almost without a sixpence. He might have urged the robbery as a plea for 
bankruptcy ; but he was too upright and too conscientious a man to even 
think of such a course, so he paid his debts to the uttermost farthing. The 
ruin which had overtaken the Warringtons postponed the proposed union 
between Edward and Miss Langdale, and Mr. Warrington struggled on for 


a few years in a small way of business, his son Edward assisting him, but 
they could not make a living out of it. In these circumstances both father and 
son eagerly embraced the offer of a relative to advance sufficient cash for 
the payment of their passage out to New South "Wales, and also £200 or so 
to enable them to start in the grazing line there. 

For several years after the Warringtons went to New South Wales 
they combated bravely with the difficulties most emigrants of limited means 
meet with, but fortune was still unkind, and after the lapse of ten years 
they found themselves again on the brink of ruin. During all this time Ed- 
ward and Miss Langdale kept up a correspondence, until on one eventful 
evening Miss Langdale was alarmed by the sudden and totally unexpected 
re-appearance of Edward Warrington with the joyous intelligence that he 
and all the family had returned in excellent health and spirits,' and with 
plenty of "gold in store." This happy termination to long years of anx- 
iety, was thus brought about: — A person named Kapsley located himself 
on a farm next to the one the Warringtons had taken. He was a sheep 
farmer, and had by successful speculations in wool and grain, acquired a 
great deal of money. He evinced great interest in the Warringtons, and 
seemed to take special note of any facts relating to the robbery which had 
been the cause of all their misfortunes. It oozed out that Eapsley was an 
emancipated convict, and the Warringtons consequently gave him the cold 
shoulder, but he would not take the hint that his soqjety was not wanted. 
At last this very undesirable neighbor requested a private interview with 
Mr. Warrington, which was granted. Prom the interview Mr. Warrington 
returned in a very excited state. It turned out that Eapsley was the iden- 
tical person who.had committed the memorable robbery, and that he was 
anxious to refund every farthing with interest. This he did by drafts on 
a Sydney bank for £7,500. On being thus strangely and unexpectedly put 
in possession of so large a sum, the Warringtons,decided to return to- their 
native land. This determination having been communicated to Eapsley, 
he insisted on defraying the expenses of the passage home. A further draft 
of £1,000 was added by the emancipated convict to the aforesaid £7,500, 
with many expressions of sincere sorrow for his crime. 

By a curious chance Mr. Warrington got both his old shop and his 
old house again ; and in a short time the former presented the same appear- 
ance which it had done a dozen years before. The marriage — postponed 
for so many years by reason of the robbery — took place immediately, and 
in a few years more the elder Warrington retired from business, being 
enabled by the restoration of his property, and subsequent successful busi- 
ness, to enjoy ease and tranquillity. 



WHEN any gold or silver, in coin, plate, bullyon hath been of ancient 
time hidden, wheresoever it be found, -whereof no person can prove 
any property, it doth belong to the King, or some Lord or other of the 
King's grant, or prescription. The reason wherefor it belongeth to the 
King is a rule of the common law ; that such goods whereof no person can 
claim property belong to the King, as Avrecks, strays, etc/— Such is 
Treasure Trove as defined by an old writer, and in ancient times the pun- 
ishment for concealing it was death ; it is now fine or imprisonment. 

If after the Crown has taken possession of any treasure the rightful 
owner can be traced, the treasure belongs to the owner and not to the 
Crown. In the olden time, when money was found in a church-yard, the 
silver went to the priest, the gold to the King. 

The right of the Crown to Treasure Trove is deemed by many people 
to be a somewhat arbitrary one, and finders of long-hidden treasures occa-, 
sionally try to dispose of them without notifying the "find" to the proper 

Some time since a laborer at Devizes, when moving the thatch from 
a barn, found thirteen old guineas and other curiosities, which had evi- 
dently been stowed away for many years. The finder in this case was 
honest, and handed over the money to the Lord of the Manor. 

The right of a Lord of the Manor to Treasure Trove found on his 
estate is strikingly exemplified by the following anecdote which appeared in 
Vanity Fair: — 

"A West-End jeweler endeavored to tempt a gentleman to purchase 
a piece of old-fashioned silver, by declaring that it had been found in a par- 
ticular field near a certain town. "Will you certify that in writing?" 
asked the gentleman. " Certainly, sir," replied the tradesman. " Do so, 
and I will take the flagon," returned the gentleman. The tradesman 
wrote out and handed to him the required certificate, whereupon the cus- 
tomer pocketed certificate and flagon together, remarking, " I am the Lord 
of that Manor. I am glad to receive my dues." 

In France, when money or valuables deemed Treasure Trove are dis- 
covered, one half of the value goes to the finder and the other half to the 
proprietor of the 'ground on which the "find" was made, as will be seen by 
the following case. The facts were these : — 

" In 1867 some repairs were going on at the Lycee. Henri IV., behind 
the Pantheon, and a workman discovered a large number of Eoman coins 
in a sewer. The contractor in whose employ the workman was, claimed his 



share ; but he was non-suited, and the Municipality paid the finder the 
handsome sum of 18,293 francs for his half of the treasure." 

There was a discussion in Parliament, in 1877, as to whether some 
very valuable securities, found in the Begum Motee during the Indian 
Mutiny by our soldiers, were to be treated as Prize Money or Treasure 
Trove. The captors claimed the same as Prize Money, but the Govern- 
ment decided that these securities must be treated as Treasure Trove, and 
25 per cent only of the value of the treasure was distributed among the 
finders. This seems to be the general rule in such cases, as far as can be 
gathered from the Parliamentary Eeturns on the subject. 

In the year 1818 a curious] Treasure Trove case was decided. The 
following is the short history of it : — The plaintiffs were the executors of 
a Mr. Noakes, deceased, and the defendant was a shopkeeper ; residing at 
Deal. It was an action of trover to recover certain property from the 
defendant, under circumstances very peculiar. A sale took place of the 
property of the plaintiff's at which the defendant attended. A chest of 
antique drawers was put up by the auctioneer and bought by the defendant 
for the sum of 4s. 3d. In the evening of the day of the sale the goods 
were removed, amongst them these old drawers. While the person em- 
ployed by the defendant to remove his purchase from the premises was 
taking away the drawers, a secret drawer fell out containing a bag full of 
guineas. The defendant was present at the time, and upon seeing what 
had occurred he asked the porter what he should do. The porter advised 
the defendant to say nothing about it, but required five guineas as hush- 
money. This the defendant positively refused, and observed that he 
would rather go to law about it than give the hush-money. The porter 
immediately made a disclosure, and a law-suit resulted. It was proven by 
the auctioneer that the drawers were sold, and that the defendant had con- 
fessed the guineas were there. It was also proven by a person at whose 
house the guineas were counted by the defendant, that the number of 
guineas amounted to between 100 and 130 in the whole. The defendant's 
counsel contended that the plaintiff could not succeed, as it could not be 
proven that the guineas were actually his property ; on the contrary, he 
contended that the Jury must consider the property not to have belonged 
t6 the deceased, but to his ancestors, or to some 'one unknown. The 
guineas might have been placed there by some one wholly unconnected 
with the deceased. The Judge, however, held that the property being 
found in the house was sufficient to prove that it was the property of the 
deceased, and the Jury immediately found for the plaintiff — damages one 
hundred and ten guineas. 

In 1882 no less than 307,000 francs in gold were discovered by a car- 
penter rolled up in wrappers of the Moniteur newspaper of the time of the 
Eevolution in the wall of a house at Dijon. The owner of the house 
claimed the money, but an adverse claim was set up by the descendants of 
the former owner. The Dijon tribunal decided in favor of the descend- 
ants, as memoranda on the wrappers proved the genuineness of their claim. 

Persons lucky enough to find valuables likely to be claimed as Treasure 
Trove would do well to consult a solicitor before disposing of them. — Pres- 
ton's Unclaimed Money. 



UNDER the law of England, no lapse of time will bar the claim of Next 
of Kin to a personal estate not specially bequeathed. This is a fact 
very important to be known in this country, masmuch as an almost univer- 
sal impression prevails amongst the people (not lawyers) that after the lapse 
of a certain time its recovery is forever barred, either by escheat or limita- 
tion. This is only true as to Eeal Estate, and the law of limitations as to 
that is pretty fully set out in our first chapter. It would seem a " sin of 
omission " however, were we to close this work without something on the 
subject of escheats. 

This word is derived from the Norman-French eschete from eschoeoir, 
to fall to (in the sense of a "wind-fall") ; Latin, cadere: Brett. 28a.; Litt. 
§683 ; Littre s. v. The first definition given to the word by our law 
writers is ; " lands falling by accident to the lord of whom they are holden 
(Co. Litt. 13a 93b) or to the Crown." It is derivM from the Feudal Rule : 
" that when an estate in fee simple comes to an end, the land reverts to the 
lord by whose ancestors, or predecessors the estate was originally created, 
(Wms. Real prop. 136), except in case of high treason, when the land 
always escheated to the Crown." (Co. Litt. 13a). At the present day in 
England, seignories in freehold land are of no practical value, and the 
evidence of them has generally been lost, so that where an escheat takes 
place, the land in almost all cases goes to the Crown, as the ultimate lord 
of all lands in England. (Wms. Real property 138 ; Co. Litt. la). 

In the United States, the State is vested with the rights of the feudal 
lord, and the land reverts to it, where there is no one competent to inherit 
after oflEice found, but the subject is, in almost all of the States, regulated 
by Statute, of which more anon. 

An escheat may happen in two ways under English law. (1) aut per 
defectum sanguinis, (for default of heirs), or (3) aid per. delictum tetientis, 
(for felony). The latter takes place where a person is outlawed for felony, 
upon which his blood is corrupted ; that is to say, he becomes incapable of 
holding land, or of inheriting it, and at common law, it therefore escheats 
to the lord. Formerly in England judgment of death for felony caused an 
escheat in the same manner as out-lawry, but this has been recently 
abolished, (Stat. 33 and 34 Vict. C. 33 ; see Attamder) as has also the rule 
that a person could not trace descent to land through an ancestor who has 
been attainted of treason or felony, so that the land escheated to the lord. 
(Stat. 3 and 4 Will. IV. C. 106 §10. 1 Steph. Com. 445.) 

Escheat is not properly a purchase in the technical sense of the word, 
for the land thus acquired by the lord descends as the seignory would have 



'descended, into the place of ■which it comes. (Burt Comp; 335 : Hargravis 
note to Co. Litt. 18 b). 

Escheat is minutely defined in 2 Bl. Com. 344. As to how it arises 
see 9 Mass.364, 368. As to title thereby see 1 Chit. Gen. Pr. 379. 

It seems the universal rule of civilized society, that when a disceased 
owner has left no heirs, his property should vest in the public, and be at 
the disposal of the Government. Code 10. 10. 1-10. ; Vin.Abr. 189 ; 1 Brown 
•Com. Law 250 ; 1 Swift Digest 156 ; 5 Binn 375 ; 3 Dane Abr. 140, §34 
Jones Land Off. Letters in Penn'a. 5, 6, 93 ; 27 Barb. 376 ; 9 Rich. Eq. 
440; 27 Penn'a, 36; 5 Cal. 373; 1 SmuU 355; 4 Zab. 566; 2 Swan 46; 
4Md. Ch. 167; 16 Ga. 31; 9 Heisk 85; 48 Tex. 567; 38 Gratt. 63; 47 
Md. 103 ; 86 Penn. 384 ; 63 Ind. 33. 

An action of ejectment commenced by writ of summons has taken 
the place of the ancient writ of escheat, against the person in possession, 
on the death of the tenant without heirs. 

Land of a copyhold tenure could not escheat to the Crown, but to the 
lord of the manor of which it was holden, (1 Chit. Gen. Prac. 380,) and 
the lord could only seize for want of an heir guousqm, that is until one 

The law of Escheats in the United States is different in the different 
States, mainly on the length of time required to bar an action for 
recovery by claimants after the property has passed by judgment to the 
State ; the longest time allowed in any of them is thirty years after the 
removal of disability. The State Laws are uniform in their application of 
the law topersonal as well as real property ; and herein they differ wholly 
from the English law ; and not only so, but it is an entire departure from 
the reason of the law, and in its practical working is often as great a de- 
parture from justice ; if not in direct violation of that provision in the 
•Constitution of the United States which says : "nor shall private property 
be taken for public use without just compensation." I apprehend much 
■of the law is yet to be made in this country on this subject. The Legisla- 
tures have had their say on it, but the courts are not yet done with it. 
Take, for example, the law of Connecticut, which is probably as liberal to 
the rights of Next of Kin as any of the States, if not the most so. Their 
Statute provides that : 

" When no owner of any estate can be found, it shall escheat to the 
State ; and Judges of Probate, in their respective districts shall appoint 
an administrator therein, and give notice to the State treasurer, who shall 
receive it from the administrator. The treasurer may manage or sell the 
property, and make a conveyance thereof. If subsequently the owner ap- 
pears, he shall be entitled to the property, or avails if it has been sold. 

When any personal estate of a deceased person shall remain unclaimed 
for five years after the settlement of his estate, in the hands of the admin- 
istrator or executor, and the person entitled to the same is unknown or 
■cannot be found, the Court of Probate, after a hearing, may order the 
same sold and avails paid to State treasurer, who shall refund it to the 
person entitled thereto if demanded within thirty years." 

Now as liberal as this law is, yet what right has a State to take 
private property, and fix a limit beyond which a rightful heir may 
not recover it? The law may be applied to real estate, perhaps, with 
some show of reason, where a remnant of the old feudal system is still 
Tecognized as existing, but the reason for it wholly fails in regard to personal 
property. It is not a reversion, because the State never had any interest in 



it. We hope no rightful heir will be deterred from seeking his remedy, not- 
withstanding the Statute of Limitations has barred it. The probabilities are 
he will not be forced to test the constitutionality of the law, for unless he 
has been guilty of some neglect in prosecuting his claim, the State will in 
almost every meritorious case pass a Special Act in his favor, which to our 
certain knowledge has been frequently done.

The following two extracts will give some idea of the enormous amount of money 
lying unclaimed in the Court of Chancery, in England i— 

(Prom The Times of 8th October, 1873.) 

"The Chanoeet Dividends. — Yesterday, the Chancery Pay Office, which last year was 
called 'the Accountant-General's Office,' was opened, and will continue open for the 
payment of the October dividends. The payment In cash to a certain amount, about i;50, 
was continued to the benefit of the recipients who had before the Chancery Funds Act of 1872 
was passed, after getting their cheques, to proceed to the Bank of England for the money. 
Now they are accommodated with cash in Chancery Lane. In the year ended the 31st of 
October last there was paid into Court at the Chancery Pay Office £19,574,422, aad 
£18,456,976 paid out. There were 51,628 cheques signed, and there were as many as 30,527 
accounts. On the various accounts the stock amounted to £60,422,116, cash £3,535,670, and 
the balance of cash at the Bank £1,111,729. The Consolidated Fund owed the suitors of th» 
Court on 1st of October last £2,423,340." 

(Prom The Times of 7th October, 1874.) 

" In Chanoeby. — The first account of the Paymaster-General under the Court of Chancery 
Funds Act of 1872 has been issued as a Parliamentary paper. It shows that on the 31st of 
August, 1873, the securities and money in the Court of Chancery belonging to suitors 
reached the value of £66,239,818, or perhaps we should say the nominal value, for the 
' securities ' are not put at their actual cash value, but are the amount of stock which has been 
brought into Court or purchased. There are also some few other securities expressed in 
foreign currencies. It is not stated why these are not included in the statement of amount, 
for they are as much'apart of the Paymaster-General's balance as any others. The 'cash'is 
not quite £4,000.000 sterling. Of this amount nearly £2,500,000 are due from the Con- 
solidated Fund, being the ' book debt ' due in cash from the Court of Chancery to the 
suitors. Nearly £600,000 had been placed ' upon deposit ' under the 14th section of the 
Act. The item of " securities " amounts to above £62,000,000 sterling, and is constituted 
chiefly of Government or Indian stock, but includes a multitude of other investments, such 
as railway stock or shares, dock and assurance companies' stock, colonial bonds, Brazilian 
and various South American bonds, Spanish bonds, St. Pancras Skinner's estate bonds, &o., 
all brought into Court for safe keeping during some strife or suit. There are also a large 
number of boxes and miscellaneous effects in the Bank of England, deposited there on behalf 
of the Court of Chancery — boxes containing securities, jewelry, title-deeds, a will, personal 
ornaments, plate, a portrait, diamond necklace, coronet, and earrings, and many other 
articles, each box being marked with the title of the cause or matter in which the contents 
are in dispute or under discussion. The account is made up to the 3l8t of August, as being 
a more convenient time than the last day of September, which has been heretofore the closing 
day of the Chancery year. The Comptroller and Auditor-General has had to report on the 
account, and he observes that the audit hitherto has, since the abandonment of the system of 
check before payment, been confined to an examination (with reference to the accounts of the 
suitors) of the certificates and draughts of the Assistant Paymaster- General, after they have 
been acted upon, and to the daily entry of all the transactions in the duplicate books 
(formerly kept at the Bank of England) pari passu with the entry of the same transactions in 
the books of the Paymaster-General. It is manifest that this limited audit does not fulfil 
the object contemplated by the Treasury in 1871 — viz., the establishment of 'a complete 
check on Chancery expenditure,' for that would involve the examination notf only of the 
documents prepared in the office of the Assistant Paymaster-General, but also of the orders 
of the Court, and of all the subsidiary authorizing documents, with the view of ascertaining 
that the intentions of the Court have been duly and faithfully carried into effect. It may 
serve to give some idea of the amount of work involved in keeping a check upon the 
Chancery books if we state that the number of causes and matters on the 31st of /.ugust,, 
1873, was 31,146, and 43,477 draughts were paid in the eleven months ending on that day. 
It may here be added that the amount of dormant and unclaimed money in official custody ia 
very large. Unclaimed dividends on the public ' Fimds ' have accumulated until the 
amount reached £991,711, in April, 1873, Cut at the beginning of the present year the 
amount had been reduced to £904,891. There is also a very large amount of unclaimed 
Army prize money, from which upwards of £600,000 has been expended on Chelsea Hospital 
pensions. The usual annual account of naval prize money has not yet, we believe, been 
issued this year. From these sources thousands of small suras are due to old soldiers and 
sailors, or their next of kin, and it should be known that these moneys are easily recoveiv 
able by the proper parties." 


FOE information concerning the following lists, we refer the reader to 
pages 6, 7, and 8 of this Manual. Additional lists will be inserted in 
«ach successive issue of the Manual, which will be revised and pubhshed 
once a year, and in the interim, supplemental lists will be issued ; so that 
names sent us for insertion will be promptly and extensively advertised. 
We repeat that no charge whatever is made for insertion of names of per- 
sons wanted, and we again urge all our correspondents, clients, and 
friends to send in any names they wish advertised. 

Any one, or more, entitled as Next of Kin to an unclaimed estate, can 
proceed to recover his or her share, or shares, independently of other 
claimants; but it is always preferable that all, or as many as possible, 
unite in the claim, as it greatly reduces the pro rata expenses. 

In regard to the amount of wealth represented by the names in the 
following lists, we can only repeat what we say on page 6 of this Manual, 
but may add that many of them do represent very large estates. We 
might enumerate by the hundred, but will only mention as samples 
of a large class, that of Helen Sheridan, in " List 13," where there is a 
million and a half pounds sterliny awaiting Next of Kin, and Leonard 
H. Smith, in "List 17," who, amongst other property, left $10,000 in U. 
S. Government Bonds, all of which is in the hands of the Public Admin- 
istrator, awaiting Next of Kin. 

It will be observed that the information respecting identity of persons 
vranted, as published in the following lists, is often very meagre. In 
some instances this is intentionally done, so that Heirs will be forced 
to seek further information through this Bureau. Otherwise they 
might ignore us in their investigation, and we would have no remunera- 
tion for our advertisement. It will be further noticed that the words, 
*' Heirs Wanted," appear to some names, and not to others. This has 
no special significance, as Heirs are wanted in all of them. 

Our business in the investigation of Old Estates, Unclaimed Money, 
etc., is not at all confined to the cases in which we publish names of per- 
sons wanted, but we will undertake any case that {presents reasonable 
grounds for hope of its recovery. In this connection we would remind our 
readers that many ninety-nine-year leases are now expiring, and occasion- 
ally one falls on lands covered by a large city or town. Any one hav- 
ing a suspicion that his ancestors may have left such reversionary interests, 
may, with little expense, have the facts ascertained through this Bureau. 

The undersigned Manager, in his sixteen years' experience as Manager 
of the Martindale Law Association, has made the acquaintance of the 
leading lawyers in every county in the United States and Canada ; and 
will be happy to give, as a reference to anyone desiring it, the name of 
some prominent man in his own neighborhood, to whom he can refer. 

Very respectfully,
